In the early hours on Monday morning, TransPacific Airlines Flight 545, enroute from Hong Kong to Denver, experiences a horrifying event. Three people are killed and countless others are injured as their plane ascends and descends in a terrifying roller-coaster ride reportedly due to turbulence.

The plane's manufacturer, Norton Aircraft dispatches an in-house Quality Assurance Vice President, Casey Singleton, to discern what exactly occurred -- and most importantly, who is to blame.

Over the next five days, Casey must sift through literally thousands of systems to determine what went wrong. The task is complex enough, but the added stress of an as-yet-unsigned sales deal of the N-22 plane to the Chinese, scheduled to happen by week's end; intense media scrutiny; union difficulties; and a saboteur, all but make her task impossible.

Will there be a movie made of Airframe? No. When we got to the point of budgeting the script, we realized that it was just too expensive to be a practical proposition. The studio would never make its money back. Disney was willing to go ahead, but I was not. So I killed the project and re-acquired the rights. For the moment, it is a dead project.
