Jensen Ackles is an LAPD helicopter pilot. He’s also a cynical, troubled Vietnam veteran whose flashbacks and reckless ways mean he’s churning through partners too fast to count. Nobody wants to work with him anymore.
Jared Padalecki is a young, idealistic police officer and due for his first promotion. He’s also an Out gay man at a time when the AIDS virus has just started to make headline news. He’s endured endless homophobic taunts and had other officers refuse to provide him with backup. Nobody wants to work with him.
When Jared is assigned to be Jensen’s new Observer, they're not sure which of them the partnership is supposed to be punishing, but the pair soon discover that they make a great team. And Jared thinks they could be something more if Jensen ever ventured out of the closet long enough for something more than a one night stand with a stranger.
When they’re selected to test pilot a state-of-the-art combat helicopter with cutting-edge surveillance capabilities, the pair unwittingly stumbles on sinister information about the government’s plans for the new helicopter. And suddenly, they’re not just fighting for their careers; they're fighting for their lives.
