When the Trans Air Flight from Tangier to New York is Hijacked, The first class passengers find themselves in particular peril, for when the plane lands in New York, the coach passengers are released and the first class passengers must face the hatred and fanaticism of the terrorists.

Yet, when rescue does come, engineered by hostage negotiator Ray Hyte the passengers are freed, the hijackers killed and the trauma is over.... Or is it?
