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>

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.

A Dull Movie With No Resolution
21 January 2010 | by (Niagara Region, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

"The Disappearance of Flight 412" was obviously put out to try to cash in on the UFO craze of the 1970's. I remember the era well. UFO sightings were all over the place. This type of movie would have been watched and it probably garnered pretty good ratings for NBC - the network that broadcast it. In the end, it would also have left pretty much everyone who watched it disappointed. It really isn't that interesting to watch 4 guys get "debriefed," but that's basically what we do for a good part of the movie. These 4 were the crew of an Air Force plane on some sort of routine assignment. 3 strange blips come up on radar, a couple of Marine fighters are scrambled to intercept them and those planes vanish. The Air Force crew then get interrogated about it over about a 24 hour period. This really doesn't lead anywhere. The interrogation ends and the guys are released to their commanding officer, played by Glenn Ford. Ford was decent enough. He was probably the best part of a weak movie, and the entire cast seemed to take this seriously enough. It's just that there's no resolution to anything. In the end all we're left with is that there's some sort of massive government cover-up about UFOs. Honestly, I saw no point to this movie at all. 2/10
