This movie features several actors who had main roles on long running TV shows: Kiefer Sutherland (24), Michael Gross (Family Ties), Henry Winkler (Happy Days), Robert Sean Leonard (House, M.D.), and Bruce McGill (Rizzoli & Isles). Margaret Cho was the star of the short lived All-American Girl, while Kristy Swanson starred in the movie Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which was turned into a TV series, but she didn't reprise the role for it.

When the incoming jet loses power to its radios the pilots then use their cell phones to contact the tower. However, cell phones do NOT work in airliners cruising at altitude. Even if they are very low the speed of the jet means that the cell phone can not connect because it will be passing through the individual cell towers so quickly that they will not even have time for the electronic "handshake" that is required to pass the cellphone signal from one tower to the next. Also the aluminum aircraft acts as a Faraday shield so any cell phone signal would be greatly attenuated.
The only way cell phones can work is in some of the newer airliners when the airplane itself essentially has a "cell tower" which can then relay the signals to a satellite and then to the ground. See more »

As an aviation buff I was really excited to see this movie. Although there were a few inaccuracies (such as planes changing models and such), it really wasnt a bad film. I could really identify with the characters and you could really care or hate them. Overall I'd give this movie an 8/10.
PS: To all the people who posted about the "real" crash footage....it was from Delta Flight 191 and it was an L1011 that crashed at Dallas in 85. United 232 was a DC-10 and it crashed in Sioux City Iowa in 1989.
