Storyline

The girls won the Shotz Brewery football lottery: a trip to Baltimore and tickets for the Green Bay Packers-Baltimore Colts game. Laverne is scared to death; it is her first flight. The small charter plane is filled with drunk fans and one RC nun; Laverne fights to sit with her. Shirley wants to calm her roommate so she brings her to the cockpit to meet Captain "Smilin' Ralph" Buzz Anderson. Besides Smilin' Ralph, there is one stewardess, just promoted from baggage claims and no co-pilot on the charter.. but the airline's motto is "God is our co-pilot." What could possibly go wrong?
