One of a series of two hour made for TV movies that feature most of the main cast (and some recurring cast members) of "Emergency!" after its run as a regular series. In this outing an ill fated DC-8 crashes down on a Los Angeles subdivision after crashing into a small plane (which lands in the LA River). Our heros Gage and DeSoto are trapped while treating a young girl at her house while Squad 51 gets clobbered by one of the DC-8's engines! Written by Jason R. DeCesare

During the airplane crash fire, real Los Angeles County Firefighter Jim Howe of Engine 9 can be seen pulling fire hose to attack the fire. In 1991, Firefighter Specialist Howe was killed in the line of duty fighting a commercial fire in Huntington Park. Howe served at Station 9 in South Central Los Angeles from the mid 1970's until his death in 1991. Station 9 was later closed in the 1990's. Eighteen years after his passing, Engine 216 out of Watts Station 16 was renumbered Engine 9 in his honor. See more »


When Engine 60 arrives at the prop-jet crash in the basin, Captain Stone exits the engine to retrieve gear from the side compartment, then walks through ankle deep water to reach the crash scene. At the arrival time of Engine 60 as Captain Stone exits the rig, his boots and bottom half of pants are already wet, signifying that this was a 2nd. or 3rd. take in filming. Had it been the 1st. take and in real conditions, his boots and pants would have been dry. See more »

Great Viewing
7 October 2002 | by (Missoula, MT) – See all my reviews

Both Kevin and Randy(along with the rest of the crew)did a fantastic job with this one. Their roles as firefighter/paramedics was a definite plus. I am looking to get this video first chance I get. I loved the series and the movies as well. They were "well done" in my opinion.
