Caution: not for the white-knuckle flyer.Global Air, once the pride of the American airline industry, has hit some very turbulent weather. Pat Boyle, Globals up-from-the-ranks VP of Operations, desperately tries to keep the airline flying safely while the new owner, Wall Street buyout artist Gerald Samuels and his hatchet man William Noren—both contemptuous of established operations procedures—connive to wring the maximum amount of money out of the failing carrier. When a widebody crashes off JFK, Boyle is publicly scapegoated for the disaster and fired. Boyle fights back, one man struggling against an entrenched, wealthy and powerful antagonist. Incident Off Runway 31L weaves a contemporary tale in which human greed, hypocrisy and ego combine with circumstance to produce tragic results.
