Waiting for Sandy

***SPOILERS*** It looked like it was going to be an exciting picture job for Mike Kovac, Charles Bronson, as he traveled to Edwards Air Force Base in California to do a photo spread on the US Air Force's newest and fasted jet fighter the X-2. Going up some 30 thousand feet in the air with test pilot Major Sandy Dickson, Grant Williams, in a high flying B-50 bomber, that the X-2 is attached to, the plane is released in mid-air and within minutes it and ts pilot loses ground radio contact! Down on the ground Sandy's fiancée Norma, Liz Howell, is grief stricken in feeling that somehow she's responsible for his death even when he or his body hasn't been found yet!

Back on earth Mike volunteers to break the terrible news to Norma in that Sandy is missing and may have possibly been killed in a plane crash. It's at Norma's apartment that after Mike tells her what happened that she suddenly flips out and when Mike leaves the place, at Norma's insistence, she locks the door and gets on the window ledge threatening to jump off some six floors down to the street.

Feeling responsible for Sandy's death like she always felt about the two other men in her life her father and brother, who were both killed in auto accidents, Norma was now determined to end it all for herself before,in her guilt ridden mind, she ends up killing someone else that she loves! Mike rushing into Norma's next door neighbor's Mrs Burns, Ann Morrison, apartment tries to talk Norma out of jumping to her death but with no news of Sandy being found alive it seems to be nothing but a fruitless effort on his part.

***SPOILERS***Mike telling Mrs.Burns to find Norma's phone number from the telephone book and give her a call before the police who were called to the scene come busting in and give, by scaring her, Norma the push that she needs to make her fatal leap. As the phone starts ringing and ringing and ringing, some ten times, Norma finally picks it up giving Mike a chance to get into her apartment,through the window ledge, to keep her from jumping but finds out to both his and Norma's surprise that he really didn't have to! As it turned out Mrs.Burns didn't get through to Norma because the line was busy! And the person who in fact did call was all that Norma needed to keep her from killing herself!
