Mike Hagan is a damned good pilot. Once in its private Pitts Special then as captain aboard the airliner. Despite a pleasant wife and a lovely daughter, he can't stay away a bottle. When occurred an incident during take-off, he saved the plane and all passengers but can't hide more longer his alcoholism.
