Davis (David Hedison) is running for president against the
Vice-President Pike (Cliff Robertson). Senator Davis embarks on a trip
to the Balkans to negotiate the release of American servicemen being
held hostage. Before he leaves, he receives a diskette with evidence
that the Vice-President has been providing support to both sides of the
conflict, using munitions sales as a way to revive the American economy.
He plans to show the data to both sides in the hopes of ending the situation. However the Vice-President knows Davis has the diskette and he sends his Secret Service men onto the plane. Now, the flight crew is dead, the President thinks the plane has been hijacked by terrorists with a nuclear weapon and the Navy has orders to shoot down the plane. Now it's up to an Air Force officer (Bosworth), nicknamed "Washout" because he can't fly a plane, to land the Concorde.
