The pilot of a Beechcraft Baron private jet, the N975OY flying at 10,000 feet, suddenly becomes ill. The aircraft abruptly climbs altitude and crashes at full speed into the Columbia Airlines Boeing 747-123 airliner on board N9675, operating flight 409 on the route Washington - Los Angeles .
As a result of the collision, Beechcraft crashes, and a huge hole forms in the bow of the Boeing, which half crashed the cockpit. Communication with the ground was lost, the co-pilot and flight engineer were killed, and the crew commander survived, but was seriously injured and lost his sight. Meanwhile, the senior flight attendant is trying to reassure passengers.
