Storyline

Colonel Pete Moore is commander of the Whitney Radar Test Group, which has been experiencing electrical difficulties aboard its aircraft. To ferret out the problem, he sends a four-man crew on Flight 412. Shortly into the test, the jet picks up three blips on radar, and subsequently, two fighters scramble and mysteriously disappear. At this point, Flight 412 is monitored and forced to land by Digger Control, a top-level, military intelligence group that debunks UFO information. The intrepid colonel, kept in the dark about his crew, decides to investigate the matter himself. Written by Rick Gregory <rag.apa@email.apa.org>

Goofs

As AF412 is preparing to take off, the tower instructs the pilot to "Squawk 3138". The "Squawk" is a four-digit transponder code using only digits in the Octal number system, i.e. 0-7. Therefore it is impossible to "Squawk 3138". See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: This is a UFO - an Unidentified Flying Object. It was photographed at Santa Catalina Island in April of 1966. Look at it again. Closely. Hundreds, even thousands of witnesses have seen similar things appear in the sky. Persons living miles from others have testified independently that UFOs have appeared in a specific place at a specific time.

X-Files without the drama, special effects, and interesting characters
28 February 2007 | by (Vulcan) – See all my reviews

An Air Force training mission is lost shortly after take off and a small squadron of UFOs are spotted on the radar screen as the planes disappear. Glenn Ford plays the concerned base commander, desperately trying to track down the crew he sent along for flight control. This crew has been abducted to a seemingly abandoned military facility in the desert by a special intelligence division, where the men are being brainwashed and otherwise coerced to participate in an enormous, and largely unexplained UFO cover-up.

The film succeeds in developing a military feel, but the characterizations are not consistent in this regard, and several absurdities and military stereotypes occur. It falls far short of creating the 'documentary feel' it strives to achieve, and - even worse

  • provides no motive or even a fleck of believability for the silly


conspiracy theory that forms its basis.

Most of the acting is OK, and the script and plot are, though inconsistent, OK. The cinematography is tedious standard 1970s TV movie fare - the camera generally does not move except for a few pans. Fortunately, the lack of inspirations is fairly consistent from the subject matter itself to the production values, so there is no need to be very concerned if you haven't managed to see this one.
