- Ladies and gentlemen,

we have just

reached our cruising altitude.

This is William Strong, your pilot

for this ride across the pond,

My co-pilot is Daniel Prentice

We're looking at a total flight time

of just around seven and a half hours

which should put us on the

ground in London, England

right on time.

Forecast calls for clear skies

so sit back

relax, enjoy your ride.

You didn't get that haircut

we talked about after your vacation.

- It's still within regulations.

- Barely.

- Sir, are you doing Ok?

Here you go, sweetie

- Thank you.

- Can I get you anything?

Another late night, party girl?

- Oh, shush.

We'll all cross checks at dawn.

Been in the air a while.

How you doing?

- I have still a few more

hours to get through.

Hey wing-man, you're making

me nervous. Something up over there?

- I don't know.

- Maybe a short somewhere?

- Ha. See?

All you need is just a little...

- Come on, Daniel, disengage the yoke.

I got it figured out.

Gander center, this is I-A 42

We seem to be having some

bit of an instrument problem,

we're trying to sort them out.

I- A 42.

- Understood, I-A 42.

- You're looking at clear skies ahead

of you in all directions.

Let us know if you need assistance.

- Will do, I-A 42.

Daniel, I can't fly like this, man.

Damn it.

Gander center. This is IA-42.

I thought you said we had clear skies.

- You had clear skies five seconds

ago, IA-42.

It pumped um on our screens out of nowhere.

Squack 7700

Do you have any way around this?

We're showing it right on top of you.

- Ladies and gentlemen please

return to your seats. We seem to be...

Crew! Secure the cabin

and return to your seats immediately.

- Sh*t!

- Think we can fly around it?

- I think we have to

go straight through.

- The hatch is rolling.

- Oh god.

- What happened?

- Are you alright?

- It's night already?

Sunset wasn't for another

forty or fifty minutes.

We didn't black out

or anything, did we?

- Oh, nothing like that.

- Sorry about that, everyone.

We had a sudden storm

pop up there.

Good news we have

past the worst of it.

It should be smooth sailing from hereon in.

You'll notice that while we

were going through that storm,

the sun went down

That'll happen sometimes

when you cross the tip of the

Bermuda triangle.

Don't worry.

You'll catch another sunset tomorrow.

- The tip of the Bermuda triangle?

- It's as good Sn answer as any.

- Anyone else's internet

connection down?

- Yeah, my phone

signal's dead, too.

- Jesus, you seeing this?

Above altitude,

airspeed fuel

- But that's just enough

to keep us airborne.

three-quarters of attack level, fine, but

that's assuming we're still on course.

- You've got control.


Gander center, this is IA-42,

we've gone through the storm.

But it seems most of our

instruments are out. Require assistance.


Gander center this is

London bound

IA-42. Do you read me?

I don't know what's going on.

- Check the backup system.

There must be something

that's working. -On it.

Gander center, this is IA-42,

do you copy?

Still nothing.


- We've got one thing

humming along just fine.

- That... what is it?

- Our radar system.

Only thing on the plane

that wasn't replaced

last time we upgraded international

airline avionics.

As long as that's operational.

That's a step in the right direction.

- How you doing here?

- Oh, good, thank you.

- Thank you.

- Can I get you something to drink?

- Sorry, were you standing there long?

- No, that's fine. What can I get you?

- A ginger ale.

It got dark early, didn't it?

- I'm sure it's just because of

the storm, like the captain said.

- Thank you.

- So,what brings you gentlemen

to England, business

or pleasure?

- Both.

- We're history professors.

ECU university.

Theres convention just outside London.

- They've discovered some amazing

pre war artifacts,

and several distinguished members

of the...

- You didnt have to bore

the poor woman.

her eyes are glazing over already.

- No, that's fine.

I just need to finish

this side of the plane,

but I'd love to hear about

it so I'll come back.

- I'm gonna hold you to that.

- Get out now while you still can.

Alright, about the Hitler

map of Argentina...

- What are you working on there?

- Who? me? just trying to

keep track of everything.

You see, when you

get to my age,

you have to stay on top

of things, because uh...

you never know when you

are going to get another chance.

- Well, I'll let you get

back to it, then.

- Thank you, then.

- Huh, that's weird.

- You got some more

good news for me?

- Take a look.

- There's nothing there.

- Not a blip.

- Is the radar malfunctioned too?

- I thought so at first,

but the coordinates are moving with us.

If this thing were in the fritz,

it wouldn't be working at all.

- So we're flying deaf

but not completely blind?

- There should be some air traffic

showing up around us.

- Ok, so let's make a loop.

Try to find someone or something.

- Nothing.


According to the radar,

we're all alone up here.

- Maybe the storm diverted traffic.

We'll wait until the radios

come back up.

- What if it doesn't?

We're still a couple

of hours away from London.

That's assuming we

didn't get turned around.

Or blown off course.

If we duck under the cloud cover,

we may be able to find some

visual cue from a

shipping lane or maybe

a message being relayed

from a cargo ship.

- You sure that's the right move?

- If no one can hear

us on the ground,

that's the only move you've got.

- This is Cameron.

- Hey, Hicks. How's it

going back there?

- We're all a little rattled but we're fine.

- Good.

I want to make an announcement

and I want the crew back

in their seats when we're making a descent.

- Is everything Ok?

- Just trying to get away

from some of this... uh...

high-level wind shield.

Just get everyone

strapped in, Ok?

- Sure.

- Everything Ok?

- We need to get everyone to their seats.

We're making a descent.

He says it's to get away

from the turbulence.

- What turbulence?

- Ladies and gentlemen,

we'd like everyone to

get back in their seats,

We're trying to get away

from this turbulence so we'll

be ducking under the clouds for a bit.

Pretty routine stuff.

But we'd like everyone

buckled in just in case.

- All secure back here, captain.

- You Ok?

- Yeah, I'm fine.

- Trust me.

When you've been doing this

as long as I have, you've seen it all.

This is nothing.

- Alright. Ok.

- Land?

The Atlantic should be below us.

- So it should be.

- Ok.

So we got blown off course.

Gander center, do you copy?

- Keep your eyes open

for a radio tower.

Blinking lights, anything.

Radar says we got small

aircraft about twenty kilometers away.

But they're all bunched up.

- Are you sure that's aircraft?

Never seen anything like that before.

- I'm not sure of anything,

but we're closing in on

whatever the hell this is.

- It's too hazy up ahead.
