John de Lancie plays the co-pilot of the ill-fated plane accidentally hit by a small jet due to a distracted air controller. The actor would later play a distracted air controller who causes two planes to crash in one of the episodes of Breaking Bad (2008). See more »
After the small plane N9748C takes off from runway 9R, it must be flying at or near heading 090. The controller now orders a right turn to heading 040. This would imply almost a full-circle turn, taking some time. Within seconds the ATC equipment sounds a collision alert, implying that once the turn started it put the two planes on a collision course. The controller now orders first Quest 19, then '48C, to turn right immediately, after which we see both pilots begin a right turn. See more »

Final Descent isn't an original flick.-But first and foremost a solid movie, without all the usual mistakes we're all so sick and tired of! The acting is solid. The plot and script works. The technical aspects seem credible. The outside-shots of the airplane are good. and the special effects are actually flawless. -On top of which Robert Ürich delivers a fine performance as usual. All in all:-A good version of an old idea. You won't be disappointed. I give it 4/6!
