Chicago air traffic controller Jack Harris is a wreck with guilt nightmares after a major airplane crash that killed all 174 aboard. He gives up the job and designs air traffic control games in Phoenix. Five years later, his ex-colleague T.C. Bryant, also transferred to Phoenix, desperately asks him to help out short-term, given desperate staff shortage on New Year's Eve with a bad storm predicted. A power outage hits, and the storm has caused their workload to multiply. Colleagues welcome him in very different states of mind but he quickly proves his capabilities, alas then the fatal memories start creeping up again: will his lack of self-confidence cause another drama?Written by

Who cares about technical inaccuracies of radio jargon or airplane details. The majority of watchers do not know and dont care. To me the only thing that is a little bit unbelievable is how the airport could have "too many planes coming in." Dont they have control of that? Anyway, it's a good show with a good outcome, even if somewhat predictable.
