The third of four movies in the "Airport" series. See more »
Just following the opening titles, Don Gallagher and Stan Buchek walk past the stationary 747 on the tarmac. Stripes are painted along the side and continue right around the nose of the aircraft. When the aircraft is taxiing prior to takeoff at night, the nose cone of the plane is shown painted black (i.e. a different aircraft). See more »
This is a so-so movie. Not as good as the previous two Airport movies. The movie gets off to a slow start, introducing the characters and trying to bring some character development to the film. And not doing too well in that regard. Even the late, great Jimmy Stweart doesn't add much to the film. As with the other movies, you have to suspend your disbelief at times. While not the best installment of the series, this is a somewhat entertaining disaster movie. Though only recommended if you've seen everything else in the store.
