A mentally disturbed Air Force pilot, Capt. Eddie Gordon (William O'Leary), murders his parents and brother, then commandeers a plane that is armed with a nuclear missile. Gordon, who is also a religious zealot, takes to the air and intends to destroy Las Vegas, which he feels deserves to be punished. Gordon's superior officer and squad leader, Col. Matt Ryan (Peter Strauss), goes in pursuit, and hopes to intercept him before he can follow through on his mad scheme.
