Added DiffLines:

* GotVolunteered: Basically, Stryker pushed into taking over as there's no one else on the plane who can fly.
-->'''Ellen''': Ted, what are you doing? You can't fly this plane!
-->'''Stryker''': That's what I've been telling these people, Ellen. But they seem to have other ideas.

Royal Canadian Air Force Pilot Ted Stryker leads an ill-fated air raid through heavy fog during the waning years of UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, a mission which results in the near total loss of his entire squadron. [[MyGreatestFailure Wracked with guilt]], Stryker spends the next eleven years drifting from job to job, unable to accept any position of responsibility, ultimately leading wife Ellen to [[TakingTheKids take their son Joey]] and leave him; but Stryker manages to board their cross-Canada flight just before takeoff. Meanwhile, a last-minute catering reschedule results in half the passengers getting violently ill -- and both pilots as well. Turns out Stryker is the only person on board who can possibly land the embattled flight and save everyone, but only if he can conquer his own demons.
