Good evening, Boston.

Liberty 298 with you

flight level 370.

You look after your left site.

5 miles for a dash-8.

You see anything?

That's a negative, Boston.

Nothing in sight.

Alright, keep an eye for us.

We had 2 dash-8 take off.

but lost contact with them,


Hey folks, we are up here

in the cockpit.

Looks like we runned into

a little bit of turbulence.

So if you are not already

there, please, take your seats,

and fasten your seat belts

and I'll try to find us

a smoother altitude.

Can I get you anything?

Hey, guys, sorry

to break up the party.

Chloe, I need you to turn

around in your seat

and put your seat belts on

for me, please.

Stay seated this way,

thank you.

Sorry about that.

But just so we're clear,

she started it.

Well, she's an unaccompanied


She doesn't know any better.

You, however...

I'm also unaccompanied too.



And you are Emma.

Excuse me, miss.

I have to go

to the girl's room.

OK, I'm coming with you.

It was nice to meet you,


Are you having a good flight?


What the hell?


Holy sh*t!

Hey, stop it.

You think I find this cute?

Listen to me, there's something

outside and it's flying right at us.

You're scaring the other


Just look.

There's nothing there.


No, it must had just missed us.

It's gotta be somewhere.


Hey, take you seat.


You need to stop.

Right now.

I swear it.

I swear I saw something.

Hey, Chloe, are you ok?

What happened?

You know...

He just feels a little sick.

So while he gets better,

let's take you back

to your seat, ok?

Everybody, stay calm.

The lights will be back on

in just a second.

Please, just stay seated

and make sure your

seat belts are buckled.

Everything is fine. Please,

I need you to remain seated.

Please, remain seated.

-Everything is fine.

-It's above us.


It's above us.

We gotta tell the pilot.

Tell him that this thing is above us.

Come on!

Hurry, it's Emma,

open the door.


Get the hell back.

Get seated.

There's something above us.

We have to descend.

Everything is out.

The radio, the controls,


But then why

aren't we falling?

You stay put, OK?

I'll be here right back!

I can't see anything.

Hit the wipers, Jim.


I... I got it.

Holy sh*t!

Where'd it go?


Run, Chloe, run!


Somebody help!


I think you got him, Jim!



Oh, my God!




Can you hear me?


Oh, God!

You son of a b*tch!

Come back, White Plains,

come back.

Any read on Liberty 298

since your last report?

Negative, Liberty 298 is still

AWOL as of 1932.

-No sign, Boston.

-Hartford, this is Boston.

Any sign of Liberty 298

on visual, please respond.

Boston, alert,

we have something. We have something.

Come back.

Liberty 298, this is White Plains.

How do your read?

Repeat, Liberty 298,

how do you read?

We read you loud and clear,

White Plains.

We lost you

for a second there.

It must've been

one of those solar flares.

It sure gave us a good scare.

There you are, Chloe.

What are you doing

out of your seat?

I wanna go home.
