Steve Austin(Lee Majors) is assisting in a simulated recreation of a plane crash involving a powerful Senator(played by Pat Hingle) who may have made a pilot error that killed his co-pilot. Steve is pressured by Oscar Goldman(Richard Anderson) to give the Senator a break at the inquiry, as it was he who got the six million dollars in funding that gave him his bionics. Fate takes a hand as they, along with the Senator's son and aide, are flying back home when the plane is caught up in bad weather, making an emergency landing that tests all four of them in unexpected but pivotal ways if they are to survive this ordeal... Good episode works as a character study in both senses of the word.
