Love is in the Air plot
Naturally, it would make sense for us to start with the movie’s plot. The film follows an extremely dedicated and self-reliant seaplane pilot named Dana Randall who is struggling to keep her family’s aviation business afloat. But things become even more complicated for Dana when she finds herself falling for a London financier sent by corporate to shut her business down.

She has five No. 1 albums, 12 ARIA Awards, a Silver Logie Award, and three World Music Awards. Some of her best albums are Innocent Eyes, Mistaken Identity and Delta.
