Veteran pilot George Gort faces a Court of Inquiry as the result of the crash of a Phoenix jet airliner. He is severly cross-examined by Sir Arnold Hobbes Q.C. and found guilty of a pilot error. The pressure mounts on Gort when Captain Judd accuses him of bringing the aircraft in too low at Calcutta. With passenger lives at risk, Gort's daughter Charlotte fights to clear her father's name by enlisting the help of Captain Dallas. With time and lives of the essence, Charlotte tries to prove that more crashes could happen because of the manufacturer's flying regulations, and that her father is innocent of any negligence.
