The world’s first commercial supersonic flight, Maiden I, is about to take off from New York to Paris, filled with a group of contest winners and crew. Unfortunately, Les Phillips, an engineer, fed up with being dissed by the plane’s designer, Willy Bassett, sabotages the plane’s hydrualic system, causing it to malfunction during flight. And as if that isn’t bad enough, Ralph Therman, an epidemioligist from WHO, has the plane transport a highly infectuous Senegal flu, turning the plane into a flying quarantine zone.
