A plane is flying from La to Philadelphia and 2 engines fail. At first, they contact Las Vegas for an emergency landing, but a man comes on the radio. He says Hankston Field is nearer and , as a former Air Force base, is suitable for landing.
The 3 man flight crew and 2 flight attendants (one played by Victoria Principal) land safely and are met by Charlie Tyson, the man on the radio. He takes the women and 2 of the flight crew into town to a motel for the night. The flight engineer, Walt, stays with the plane. He calls the charter owner, then grabs a soda from the machine in front of the airport and that is the last time he is seen alive.
He is found the next morning at the airport dead and the plane is missing. Charlie Tyson has also disappeared.
