1 hr. 45 min.
When Navy pilot Dale Heath (Efrem Zimbalist Jr.) takes off, he doesn't expect his navigational equipment to fail, and must adapt when it goes out along with his radio. Heading straight for a commercial jet piloted by Dick Barnett (Dana Andrews), whose plane is full of passengers, Heath can't tell which way to turn in order to avoid a catastrophe. Subplots including Barnett's co-pilot Mike's (John Kerr) relationship with a flight attendant (Anne Francis), buoy this tense airborne thriller.
