All is going swimmingly until a group of undercover eco-warriors make themselves known. They want access to the cockpit – and suddenly Mina has to make a heart-wrenching decision. Should she save her little daughter, or the lives of the 353 passengers on board the Boeing 777? Prepare for an edge-of-the seat journey with plenty of turbulence before you find out Mina’s choice.
