Opening paragraphs....................

Potential disaster hovered over a small-town airport in the south-western corner of Missouri one afternoon in May of 1969.  Weather was not a problem:  it was a pretty day.  But three fliers unknowingly but inexorably were heading for a close brush with death.  They were, as the locals would say, within spitting distance of eternity.
