This is a book where people make good decisions.


Jay Cooper and his uncle go flying in a plane to see a nice view of the mountains when turbulence from an airliner knocks them both unconscious. Jay wakes up quickly but cannot see, much less fly the plane. Fortunately, Dr. Cooper might be able to help them.


Jay wants to save his uncle at any cost. Dr. Cooper supports him in this despite scorn from a colleague. Rescuers attempt to save them even though it is dangerous for them.
