Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Joe (Tim Daly) has been temporarily grounded from flying due to high blood pressure. At first welcoming the opportunity to be a desk jockey for a while, Joe soon grows weary of his inactivity -- and increasingly hostile toward the devil-may-care attitude of Sandpiper Air's remaining pilot, his brother Brian (Steven Weber). One thing leads to another, and by mid-episode Joe has blown his stack and fired his own brother! And just when the situation couldn't get worse, in comes rival airline owner Roy (David Schramm) with an offer to buy Sandpiper, an offer which Joe is presently in no position to refuse.
