I've seen this movie, when I was only six or seven years old. I could mention, that I was very impressed by this movie. I could say, that this is outstanding work in Soviet cinematography. In '80 it was first thriller/disaster movie in Soviet Russia, where all sides of air crews' everyday life were shown. For us, Russians, this movie was more than simply "just another soviet movie", but movie, which tell to us "Look! Everyday is not calm and clear, everything is unstable". Also, this cinema is about love, family's life, every little thing in life of man as professional, as father, as husband, as good friend.
This story is about group of good friends - pilots of Tu154B soviet airplane. One of them has a family - wife, daughter, others are single. As the one crew, they drive the airplane across the Soviet Union and also to the Europe. The life is calm and easy, day by day goes to the retire. But one day they were asked to go to Georgia to save people in disaster - the earthquake. During the escaping, the airplane was badly damaged to perform the successful landing, so the engineer has to go out the plane and fix the problem during the flight.
So, this movie is very impressive, outstanding for '80s.
