No smoking.

You have to love Australian lingo. It's sui generis. There's a flight from Maylasia to Perth and the program briefly introduces us to a few passengers. One is a father with two active sons, and he asks them, "Aw roit, sittle din, kids." This episode spends more time with the passengers than is usual but that doesn't detract from its effectiveness.

The airplane is at 37,000 feet in clear weather when it begins to glow all over with an eerie blue light. It looks like St. Elmo's fire except that there are no storms to provide highly charged electrical particles.

All four of the jet's engine begin to leave streams of flame behind them. The passenger cabin becomes filled with a sulfurous smoke, but a diligent search reveals no fire on board. Then all four engines quit, one after the other. At a lower altitude the crew manage to get them started again but as they approach the nearest airport they discover that the windows are translucent, the airport's landing assistance devices are inoperative, and they must land the airplane blind.

The episode almost belongs on "The Twilight Zone." I won't describe the explanation.

The musical score is sometimes distracting, drums pounding and so forth. It's really not necessary because the suspense carries the narrative quite well by itself.
