The Hunger Planes is a case featured in Criminal Case, appearing as the eighty-fourth case of the game and the twenty-eighth case of Pacific Bay. It takes place in White Peaks, a district based in Pacific Bay.
Amy and the player were ordered to go to a White Peaks volcano summit to search for an Osprey Airlines flight reported missing two weeks prior. They found Amy's ex-boyfriend Bobby Prince, a passenger in the flight, alive. He was then escorted with the other survivors to the police station. Bobby directed them towards the volcanic summit where they found the plane's pilot, Captain Harry Hugo, hanging over the lava pit. After observing the body and declaring it a murder, Amy and the player shipped the body to Roxie for autopsy. Much to Amy's sorrow, the player incriminated Bobby Prince to be Captain Hugo's killer.
Amy felt that the player was never wrong so she believed in them despite Bobby insisting that it was all a mistake. After presenting the evidence, Amy angrily told Bobby to just admit to the truth already. Bobby said that the survivors had no food and hope but Captain Hugo had only thought of himself the whole time. Bobby and the captain went to look for help until an avalanche came and knocked out Bobby. When Bobby woke up, he found out Captain Hugo took everything Bobby had and left him for dead. Because of all the rage and the hunger, Bobby felt the need to eat him. He pounced at him, smashed his head, and tied the victim to a spit so he would cook him. Bobby's rush of animalistic instincts stopped when Amy found him. Bobby said that he had no choice but Amy knew otherwise, so Bobby was arrested.
Bobby told Judge Dante he had to do anything to survive as if there was no tomorrow. Judge Dante gave Bobby 30 years in jail with mandatory psychological counseling for the cannibalistic murder of Captain Hugo aside from the jokes he cracked before issuing the final judgment.
Amy left the player after the arrest to spend some time thinking about how her return to White Peaks. She said that she was initially happy but later felt that all her memories of her hometown were lies. Frank cheered Amy up, reassuring her that she was a good cop and a good person.
Amy was traumatized by Bobby's arrest so she took some time off. Chief Marquez instructed Duncan Young to help the player check up on Alice Blick. She also told Frank to get Celine Dernier away from the mountain. As the player helped Celine, Russell helped restore a lost picture of Stella Dernier, Celine's long-lost twin sister. The player returned the picture to Celine, telling her that her twin was one of the Night Walker's victims. The cops went back to the station, vowing to unravel the mystery behind the White Peaks legend.
