An airliner collides with a light plane just after takeoff, causing its elevators to jam in the full climb position. It will crash as soon as the fuel runs out, unless some desperate measure succeeds in bringing the nose down. Written by
I was at Townsville airport, in northern Australia one day, watching a pilot conduct the visual inspection of a DC9 (MD80) which he was about to fly to Brisbane. Just before he boarded the plane, he walked up to the front wheel and gave the tyre a lusty kick. So having a scene where the pilot kicks a tyre is no reason to discount the realism of the entire movie............ I have not as yet seen the movie, but I have always been interested in aeroplanes and anything to do with them, which is why I was watching the pilot perform his pre-flight (something which, I have been told by people who work as aircrew, is a normal aviation requirement).
