Although Ernest K. Gann, who wrote book on which film was based, later claimed he was reportedly so unhappy with film that he demanded his name be removed, his name does indeed appear in credits as author of source material. See more »
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.

The other commentors have made entirely appropriate remarks about some of the virtues of this film, but for me the true power of this film is in the story of McBane learning, in the course of the investigation, about the true character of the doomed pilot.
Better late than never.
