Issue(s): Daredevil #24
Review/plot: This issue starts off with Daredevil in a "hostile nation somewhere in Europe", being attacked by brigands. He beats them up and flies a plane to England.
This is the thing about Daredevil: what is the point of making him blind if he can still do anything a sighted person could do. It's a false handicap and moments like this make it seem especially lame.
When he gets to England, Daredevil "reads" in the newspaper that Ka-Zar has been on the rampage again. Daredevil investigates, mocking the way-too-british militia ("Blimey! Hi'd like a look at that Ka-Zar bloke, H'i would!") that is getting ready to storm Ka-Zar's castle. Daredevil discovers that Ka-Zar's brother Parnival has escaped from prison and is setting Ka-Zar up. DD and Ka-Zar defeat Parnival...
...and then Ka-Zar lends DD the money to get home to America (which a certain reading of this issue would lead one to believe was the main point in DD going to help Ka-Zar in the first place).
The last panel ends with Karen Page and Foggy Nelson opening a letter from Spider-Man saying that he knows that Matt is Daredevil.

but why COULDNT D.D. fly a plane, using radar? Wouldn't it be easier up in the air than with the distractions of a city, and so on?

If it was something with an open-air cockpit like a biplane, maybe, but in a closed plane he shouldn't be able to sense anything outside.

Not necessarily, Thanos6, they have been scenes where DD sensed things through a wall with his radar.

If he uses sonar it wouldn't work, I think is what you're thinking. If it was actually radar, then it would work. Of course, if it was actual radar, then Daredevil could be giving people cancer with his brain.
