Storyline

Have you ever thought of traveling through time...going forward or backward to any date? That's the intriguing question aviator/inventor Max Knickerbocker (E.T.'s Peter Coyote) asks Jonathan Knicks (Huckleberry Fox of "Terms of Endearment"). Max is unaware that Jonathan is his grandson - already an adventurous time traveler thanks to a machine built by his neighbor, Henry Coogan (Academy Award-winner actor Art Carney). Can Jonathan save his grandfather from a fatal solo flight across the Atlantic and alter the course of history? Written by Rick Brownlie <rick@cougar.multiline.com.au>

A Wing and A Prayer

This is a wonderful story about early aviation and how several pilots lost their lifes trying to cross the Atlantic before Lindbergh. When a young boy hears a story from his granfather, played by Art Carney, about his great grandfather, played by Peter Coyote, trying to make the crossing he decides he must help him. With the help of his greandfather he travels back in time. It is a shame a wonderful family movie like this is not on VHS let alone DVD.
