Hilarious
25 November 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Remember seeing this late one evening back in the seventies and again in the early eighties, genuinely funny movie with good characters and plot. Most memorable was the President zipping round the desert in his dune buggy, the homosexual Pilot who got locked in a closet on the plane with several other crew members then complained they were touching him, the co pilot who wanted to go to Hamburg to visit the red light district and the guy in the control tower who kept making obscene phone calls to the aircrews wives, wish I could get a copy on DVD or video. A friend also saw this and we could remember the plot but not the title, its just took two hours to find it on IMDb!
