On a moonless September night in 1962, 900 miles from land, Flying Tiger flight 923 began to fall apart at 21,000 feet. One by one its engines burst into flames. Most of its passengers were Special Forces, en route to West Berlin. Though highly trained and ready for anything the Soviets might throw their way, they were powerless over the North Atlantic. A crash was inevitable. Survival was Mission Impossible. Tiger in the Sea is the story of that harrowing flight.
