Fiction

An old Navy airplane, and SNJ trainer, is forced to make a wheels-up, dead-stick landing within seventy-five yards of the shore on lake Winnebago, Wisconsin. The pilot is obviously groggy as he tries and fails to open the canopy. A lone woman, runs from her patio to the water’s edge, and sees the pilot desperately trying to open the canopy.

She then assists him out of the cockpit and they are both able to get to shore.
The Pilot, Captain Josh Wiley, was on his way to Oshkosh where he was to meet someone from the State Department, in an attempt to stop the delivery of fifteen F-15 fighter planes sold to the Saudis by the President.
Timing is critical. The F-15s are about ready to be shipped, and if they go the aircraft can represent a clear and present danger to the United States. The woman who rescued him agrees to drive him to his meeting. On the way, they become targets for assassins who want the aircraft delivered.
The woman, Sidney Devries, proves herself to be more than a match for the assassins, and agrees to join him in his effort to abort the delivery. The struggle to survive continues as they are rejected by the State Department man at Oshkosh and continue to be attacked until an Admiral listens to their appeal for help.
The situation grows tenser by the hour and moves from Wisconsin to Washington. It involves the State Department, Chief of Naval Operations Admiral, and Directors of several investigative branches. It may even involve the President.
There is pressure from the White House to make immediate delivery. Is it from the President? All involved realize that they are dealing with a sensitive situation.
During all this, Josh and Sidney become very close.
