"The North Atlantic weather", the air stewardesses under training were told, "is harsh, unpredictable and sometimes of immeasurable force." And that, thought Patsy Aylmer, was no bad description of Captain Robert Prentice. Like all the other girls of World-Span Airways, she shook in her beautifully-polished shoes at the idea of flying under his command; while he, for his part, seemed to be even more strict and exacting (and that was saying a lot) with her than with any of the others. This is the story of how they came to know each other better as the great aircraft in which they flew came and went on the hazardous transatlantic run. The background is filled in with plenty of authentic detail and some lively, amusing portraits of the personnel of World-Span Airways.
