Evangelical Christian feature: while in Israel interviewing a scientist about a new method of growing food on arid land, reporter Buck Williams witnesses an attack by Iraqi fighters; however the fighters suddenly vanish, even before Israel's airforce can get their planes into the air. On a flight to London, pilot Rayford Steele sees dozens of his passengers simply vanish into thin air, and Steele's daughter Chloe is caught in a terrible traffic jam caused by lots of drivers similarly disappearing. It becomes clear that these disappearances are 'raptures' - people being taken up to heaven by God in advance of hard times.
