The unthinkable has happened. The Soviet Union has beaten the West in the technological stakes. It has neutralised America’s nuclear arsenal with a killer laser that can direct its superheated energy beam at targets across the globe.
In a desperate attempt to counter this threat the United States activates the one bomber in its fleet capable of taking out the laser installation before it is too late: Old Dog Zero One, a battle-scarred veteran B-52, stripped of its antiquated hardware and rearmed with the latest state-of-the-art weaponry.
In a suspenseful and spellbinding dramatisation of aerial combat, the bomber and its crew will have to challenge wave upon wave of surface-to-air missiles and swarms of deadly MiG fighters.
