OPERATION NIGHTFALL is about the biggest and most daring hijack project yet - not of a 'plane, but of a whole airport.
Keel, Abercrombie and Donovan are crack pilots and partners in small - time crime. But Keel is ambitious. This time he intends to be rich. Together with three other airmen they set up a dummy organisation and lease three Piper Cherokee aeroplanes. Every detail of the operation is planned and rechecked to the last detail, with split - second timing and the precision normally reserved for a full - scale military exercise.
At the appointed hour, the three aeroplanes begin circling over Atlanta ( Georgia ) International Airport. They will bomb everything on the ground out of existence unless they collect a ransom of three million dollars, one million from each of the major airlines.
The climax is heartstopping, as law enforcement officers from several branches of government urge that the Cherokees be shot down. Only Kuhlman, the airport manager, keeps his cool and decides to play a more daring game...
