Shin Kazama was once in training to become an airline pilot, until his jealous friend Satoru Kanzaki tricked him into signing a 3 year contract whose reward is $1,500,000, and whose escape is unthinkable. His mission since that day has been to work for a hidden base of mercenaries known as Area 88, with the skies as his new home, soaring into deadly battles and fighting to survive. Determined not to die, this ace pilot of Area 88 battles hard daily to one day leave the hell of being a fighter pilot. Will he ever return to his fiance Ryoko, or is he doomed to die in the skies?
