Transwestern Flight 161 is a new Excalibur jet, en route from St. Louis. It crashes killing 199 passengers and crew. The crash is a total mystery because weather conditions are perfect and the aircraft a brand new design made for unprecedented handling and performance. The answers lie buried in a smoking heap of twisted metal.

The investigations that follow shake the aviation industry to its foundations and change the lives of everyone connected with the new aircraft. Other Excalibur jets are still flying and the chances are that somewhere in them is a tiny undetected flaw that will cause another disastrous crash. There is no way of guessing when it will happen again.
