"Lieutenant Mowbray was still talking to Pickering on the telephone when he completely destroyed the peace of the Coast Guard Air Rescue station. Holding the phone in one hand, he boosted himself up in bed and pressed the red alarm button on the wall." The dramatic adventures of a commercial airplane flying from Honolulu to San Francisco. Written by an author who had piloted such flights, the novel contains vivid descriptions of air travel and navigational assistance during the period following World War Two, as well as memorable characters and a tension-filled plotline.
