*** This review may contain spoilers ***

It begins like some sort of Twilight Zone episode, or some kind of sci-fi story. It takes place on a military airport, in a tower of control, where the two guys in charge of the aircraft traffic hear some strange noises from the air. They don't know what it is about. They wonder. So do the audience. And it appears that this is a light airplane. That's all.

The following sequences are worth watching for this TV show which don't happen to surprise us in such a way. A good mystery yarn that finally has nothing to do with any kind of sci-fi at all.

Not bad, really. And look for the young Patrick Mac Nee - just before he played John Steed in AVENGERS UK TV show. Speaking of him, I wonder what the hell he made in such a US TV show. He was hardly known at this time over the Atlantic...

At least, I suppose so.
