During a flight, passengers are told that an incident is happening at the Andersen Air Force Base in Guam.

The story starts as follows:
Gregg Holder in Business
Holder is on his third Scotch and playing it cool about the famous woman sitting next to him when all the TVs in the cabon go black and a message in white blocks text appears on the screens. AN ANNOUNCEMENT IS IN PROGRESS. Static hisses from the public address system. The pilot has a young voice, the voice of an uncertain teenager addressing a crowd at a funeral.
“Folks, this is Captain Waters. I’ve had a message from our team on the ground, and after thinking it over, it seems proper to share it with you. There’s been an incident at Andersen Air Force Base in Guam and—”
The PA cut out. There is a long, suspenseful silence.
“—I am told,” Waters continues abruptly, “that U.S. Strategic Command is no longer in contact with our forces there or with the regional governor’s office. There are reports from off-shore that— that there was a flash. Some kind of flash.”


Other information:
· Stephen King came with the idea of making an collection of horror stories about planes and flights when they were dining after the screening of The Dark Tower movie, Richard and Bev were immediately on board.
