While test flying a stealth-fighter with a new Virtual-Reality control circuit somewhere over Turkey, Capt. Christopher Winfield encounters problems and must eject from the plane, that subsequently crashes. Capt. Winfield must follow the two remaining stealth-fighters home to the US in the cargo-bay of a transport-plane flown by Maj. Janet Morgan for a court martial. A group of terrorists led by a man called Phillips are very interested in the planes and try to high-jack one in mid-air, thus forcing Capt. Winfield to go into action.
