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 a mid-air collision with a small plane (which lands in the LA River). Our heroes Gage and DeSoto are trapped while treating a young girl at her house; meanwhile, Squad 51 gets clobbered by one of the DC-8's engines! Written by

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
