Seychelles - Special Agent Gibbs has dispatched McGee and DiNozzo to the Seychelle Islands in the Pacific to check out the former US Navy Seals' deaths on a highjacked boat made famous by a Tom Hanks movie.
The NCIS boss insisted in jockeying off the US Coastguards Department to take charge of the probe after his top two agents complained of having been dumped in a series of lousy assignments in downmarket DC locations.
Tonight Gibbs' best boys were flying on a military transporter to Port Victoria in the Indian Ocean after the captain of the US-flagged Maersk Alabama sent out a mayday following the suspicious deaths of the two former special forces operatives.
The vessel was in the news in 2009 when Somali pirates highjacked it in a bid to swap an Al Qaeda terrist called the White Widow for NCIS's Leroy Jethro Gibbs.
A tense five-day standoff ended when Navy Seals aboard the USS Bainbridge killed three high jacking pirates behind the prison swap bid which included holding the Maersk Alabama's Captain Richard Phillips in a lifeboat.
Today's incident should be available on the CBS-aired Season 12 which premieres later this year on September 20
Agent Ziva Davide is six months pregnant, hence her Season 11 AWOL.
