Synopsis
A controversial thriller about a madman who puts the lives of a group of travelers in jeopardy by planting an altitude-activated bomb aboard a plane in an extortion plot against the airline. Serling's screenplay was so detailed -- creating a device that would explode below 5,000 feet -- that a subsequent real-life incident using an almost identical premise caused this film to be withdrawn from distribution for a number of years.
