The most fascinating people the gods of chance ever swept up into high adventure!

The Crowded Sky

When Navy pilot Dale Heath (Efrem Zimbalist Jr.) takes off, he doesn't expect his navigational equipment to fail and must adapt when it goes out along with his radio. Heading straight for a commercial jet piloted by Dick Barnett (Dana Andrews), whose plane is full of passengers, Heath can't tell which way to turn in order to avoid a catastrophe.
