Storyline

When a bomber believed to have crashed in the ocean 17 years ago is found in the Libyan desert. A Colonel and Major accompany the only surviving member of the crew, who is now a General to figure out what happened. The General claims that he and the other members of the crew jumped over the ocean when in reality he bailed out leaving the others to fend for themselves. And while the Colonel just wants the whole thing closed, the Major insists on finding the truth. And watching them are the ghosts of the crew. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

One of the best Movies of the Week.
30 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have been searching for well over 30 years for a copy of this Made for Television Movie. I loved the script when I first read it, and although I had a very small part (the British Co-Pilot who discovers the grounded remains of the plane), it was a memorable shoot. Like most of you who are fans of the film and have sought high and low for a copy, I still keep looking. I do remember it was made for CBS Films, a subsidiary of the Big Eye. I am sure it is in some vault somewhere. If I ever run into William Shatner I will ask him if he has a copy. Or Patrick Wayne. There are just a few of the actors still kicking around and in those days getting a copy of our work was hard. Taping machines were rare.
