Goofs

When the airliner loses both engines at the start of the movie (both apparently lost to fire), the aircraft still has lighting (both internally and even exterior landing lights). Without an auxiliary power unit, which no aircraft of this era had- the airplane would have gone instantly dark, with only limited instrument lighting in the cockpit furnished with battery power.

Excellent Movie
27 November 2003 | by (Georgia, USA) – See all my reviews

A terrific movie, Glenn Ford, Rod Tayler, and Suzanne Pleshette give wonderful performances. Not only a suspenseful movie, but it also one which makes a person think. Maybe some things are just meant to be. I just wish it was available on Video or DVD.
