Undersea diver Mike Nelson is a former navy frogman who now works at Marineland. When an experimental supersonic fighter is forced to ditch at sea, the manufacturers hire Mike to locate it and attach a marker buoy so it can be raised. Mike has little trouble finding the aircraft in about 60 ft. of water. What he also finds is the pilot, alive in the airtight cockpit, but with only 15 minutes of oxygen remaining in his tanks. It up to Mike to find a way to get him out. Written by garykmcd
