great thriller!
11 October 2004 | by (Rio Brasil) – See all my reviews

I saw this TV movie a long time ago but still remember the excitement that took me for its hour and half duration time. Seen by today standards it would be a very common story, due to the fact that the plot has been painstakingly cloned by hundreds of very bad film killers. But not this one. It's atmosphere involves you in a special way and makes you feel as if you're one of the unfortunate passengers caught on that death trap. Doug McClure is mostly convincing in this role of a Vietnam war ex-chopper pilot,

obliged to recall his skills to lead that plane into a safe landing, counting only on the help from the voice of a controller who gives him an instant training on flying that special aircraft. I've missed this one for many years to be issued in video or in DVD, and hope that someday it will, for the joy of the genre fans.
