Plot – Pete Sandrich, a skillful and reckless airplane pilot assigned to forests fires' extinguishing, doesn't want to stop to fly as Dorinda Durston, his girlfriend, suggests him. The woman is apprehensive and her fears are justified when, during a very risky mission to save his friend Al Yachey, Pete dies. After meeting the ethereal Hap in heaven, Pete agrees to transmit, as a "guardian angel", his experience to Ted Baker, an aspiring pilot fascinated by Dorinda but frequently rejected by her, because the woman is still emotionally bounded to her beloved Pete. Sandrich now has a mission, that is not only to train Ted to his image and similarity, but to reassure Dorinda about the new lover, freeing her heart from any past regrets. Completed the "mission", Pete is admitted to heaven.
