Hours of delay, mystifying actions of the pilot in his management of the flight of the plane, untoward treatment by the airline personnel, all culminate to enrage the passengers of the Meridian Flight 6 and drive them toward airline mutiny. With the loss of radio contact, there is a danger that the plane is presumed to be hijacked. The passengers of Meridian Flight 6-delayed for hours and mistreated by airline personnel-have been pushed to the edge. When Captain Phil Knight makes a forced emergency landing in war-torn Nigeria, abandoning his copilot to certain death, violence erupts inside the cabin. The enraged passengers attempt the unthinkable: the first-ever commercial airline mutiny. But what they don't know could kill them. The unscheduled loss of radio contact has led NATO and the CIA to believe the worst-that the plane may have been hijacked.

Review: Turbulence

User Review  - Cathie Bannon - Goodreads

I am normally a big Nance fan and this still held my attention. It's not that I didn't enjoy it, but it's definitely not his best. All of his books rely on a cascade of out-of-ordinary-but-could-happen events and that's fine, but I found this one to be a bit unbelievable. Read full review
