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.

Not One To Miss....
28 November 1999 | by (Maplewood NJ) – See all my reviews

If this happens to be on your cable channel it is a MUST SEE!! Ford plays Sam McBane, a VP with an airline which has just lost a plane in a crash. Taylor plays the pilot of the aircraft, who also happens to have been a war-buddy. The rest of the cast is top-notch and the story outstanding. However, it bears pointing out that YOU MUST WATCH THE FIRST 10-12 minutes and MOST DEFINITELY the finale as it brings all of the film to full circle. Watch it and enjoy!!
