Not only does the aircraft appear to be a 747/757/Caravelle on takeoff/during flight/after landing but it would appear to have started out life as a L10-11 at the departure gate before boarding. Quite the versatile machine! See more »
Air traffic controllers are proffessionals doing a high pressure job where other people would buckle under the pressure. They are higly trained coping with massive responsibility and do a great job. This movie does no justice to these hard working folks.
The writing team have no idea how air traffic controllers work, otherwise they would never have made so many mistakes. The head controller starts bawling her eyes out when she finds out her husband is on the flight, talk about being cool under pressure. And then she leaves her post to greet her husband at the runway (dont forget there are other planes stacked up in the sky at this time). How unproffessional and selfish is this woman?!
The pilots are asking the husband (an air traffic controller) what to do (pilots are trained for emergencies). Also the husbands hair must be covered with buckets of gel for his hair to stay in place during the ordeal.
The passengers on this plane are very calm when they see the wing on fire - surprisingly there is no "Airplane" style mass hysteria in this movie!
The plane lands, aquaplanes and does a 360 spin - The passengers make an emergency exit and then stand a few metres away from the plane gawping - the plane was on fire - it could still blow up!
The really awful aspect of this movies is that eight members have given this movie a ten star rating!! They probably believe that this is how Air Traffic controllers and pilots do their jobs - the writer of this movie should do us a favour and strap himself onto the wing of the plane and say a prayer.
