Sam leaps into the body of Eddie Brackett, a relatively inexperienced co-pilot aboard a private airplane en route to Bermuda. The plane is owned by a rich man whose son and new bride are going on their honeymoon. When the new bride becomes ill, Al tells him that she has appendicitis and unless Sam can convince the pilot not to return to base and press on to Bermuda, she will die. The pilot had a previous experience in the Bermuda Triangle and is still suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder so Sam's task is not a simple one. His first attempt at keeping them on course will, according to Al, result in all of them dying but as the instruments begin to fail Sam presses on. Written by
