A routine flight turns into a major emergency as passengers and crew succumb to food poisoning - is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane? If that sounds vaguely familiar, it's because 'Airplane' was a send-up of this forerunner of the 1970s disaster movie.. Written by

The flight number of the plane in this film is 714. Peggy King, who plays stewardess Janet, was in an episode of Dragnet (1951)), a series that was also known as "Badge 714". See more »
In every scene where the radio in the plane is used, the characters are directed to listen with the headsets. In the final scene, Ted Stryker does not use it to listen to Martin Treleaven's congratulations. See more »
If you're an Airplane! fan, you've got to see this film.
I was always told that Airplane! was a take off of the Airport movies of the 70s. It might have been, but the main source for the film was Zero Hour! This film is hilarious if you're a big Airplane! fan. As I watched ZH, I was reciting the same Airplane! dialogue in my head. I've never seen two movies that are so similar. It's quite a hoot!
