Ladies and gentlemen, this is the captain speaking. If you look out the left side of the plane, you'll see a military helicopter. Do not be alarmed. I'm going to coordinate an unusual maneuver with this aircraft. I'm going to ask him to create some holes in the tip of our plane, by shooting his guns.

I like Robert Ulrich a lot so that may influence my opinion. I expected to be bored but was not. The acting was good. There's always a temptation to go over the top in these types of films but it didn't happen here. The snippets of the passengers were blessedly short and the emphasis stayed on trying to save the plane. The technical stuff was believable.
