During an exercise an F-14 Tomcat clips the top of a utility tower in Nevada. The two aviators eject and survive, and the aircraft crashes into a desert; however, burning debris from the crash kills a mother and a baby in a car on an adjacent road. Mac joins them from Washington to represent the pilot, who has requested a lawyer. While Harm recreates the fateful flight, he gives Mac a ride in a Tomcat; she finds it challenging. The evidence appears to implicate the CO of the involved squadron, who was a mentor and one of the instructors of Harm while he was in flight school. In a pretrial hearing Harm prosecutes him, and Mac defends him. Written by
