Lightning appears to strike an F-14 Tomcat and to disable its avionic gear at night during a flight to the Naval Air Station at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba. The pilot wanders into Cuban airspace, and two Cuban fighters intercept him and force him to land at a Cuban airfield. Harm, Meg, and others fly to Cuba to negotiate a return of the aircraft and the pilot, although Castro has already made a deal to sell the advanced avionic programs to Iran. Games and intrigue ensue in Cuba. Harm and an old buddy have a reunion, then they escape in a borrowed aircraft; the others later return to Washington. RAdm. A.J. Chegwidden reports for duty.
Did You Know?
The F-14 is shown running full afterburner in the hanger. This would be extremely dangerous. Only one engine would need to be running, and at idle, to provide power for the avionics. See more
