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

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
