Ex-fighter pilot Ted Striker became traumatized after an incident during the war, leading to his fear of flying and his drinking problem. Recovering his courage, Striker attempts to regain the love of his life from the war, Elaine Dickinson, now a stewardess. In order to win her love, Striker overcomes his fear and buys a ticket on a flight she is serving on, from Los Angeles to Chicago. After dinner is served, many of the passengers fall ill. The stewards discover that the pilot crew, including pilot and co-pilot, have all come down with food poisoning, leaving no one aboard to fly the plane. Starring: Robert Hays , Julie Hagerty & Peter Graves.
