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 garykmcd

Captain Cooper regularly refers to the region known as "The Bermuda Triangle". Admittedly, the region's unusual features have been documented as far back as Christopher Columbus, who wrote in his logs about bizarre compass bearings. However, the term "Bermuda Triangle" was not coined until Vincent Gaddis' 1964 cover story for Argosy magazine about the disappearance of Flight 19. This story takes place August 13, 1956.
