QUOTE: "Hey, pal. I'm Flash. You know what that means? Nobody dies. It's a rule." —The Flash

SUMMARY:  After apprehending a member of a dangerous metahuman terrorist group in San Francisco, the Flash accompanies the prisoner and his FBI escorts on a cross-country flight. Upon boarding the airliner he quickly hits it off with Julie Meyers, a friendly flight attendant with a sense of humor. Once the plane is airborne a number of passengers reveal themselves to be metahuman radicals intent on freeing their captured comrade. Wally attempts to disable the team of hijackers before the situation can spiral out of control but the cramped quarters hinder his movement. During the ensuing chaos, one of the terrorists fires a weapon and the blast creates a massive hole in the airplane's hull. Julie Meyers is instantly blown from the cabin. Wally West panics. Then, in an instant of impulse, the fastest man alive leaps from the airplane into open air and begins to plummet in a desperate bid to save the falling flight attendant.
