For Concord pilots, as well as for passengers, this is the most common transatlantic flight from Washington to Paris . They do not yet know that they will face the failure of navigation systems, a missile attack and an emergency landing in the Alps . The plane, following the usual Washington-Paris flight, falls into a real bind: he has to flee from a homing missile, evade the attack of a French fighter and make an emergency landing in the absence of brakes. And all the fault is one of the passengers of the plane - Maggie, who carries with her very important secret documents that prove that the powerful corporation Harrison Industries is engaged in the production of nuclear weapons. The company’s management intends to prevent the publication of these documents at any cost.
