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

On September 25th, 5 months to the day after this episode originally aired, PSA flight 182 with 128 passengers and a crew of 7, collided with a private Cessna 127 with two people aboard over San Diego California. The sad difference is no one survived on either plane and seven people on the ground were killed also. It almost seemed as if the producers predicted the future. Also that night a popular pre-recorded game show gave away a prize to a couple for a flight to San Diego on PSA airlines. The game show was pre recorded weeks if not months in advance. 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
