One of the three greatest movies involving an airplane
21 December 1999 | by (Leisenring, Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

Doomsday Flight, written by the master dramatist Rod Serling, is one of the three best movies ever made involving an airplane flight (Fate is the Hunter and Airport are the others). Very well acted by a non-big name cast including lots of familiar faces.
