Did You Know?

Goofs

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 »

Welcome to Awful Airlines....
1 June 2001 | by (Charlotte, NC) – See all my reviews

Arrrgh! This is one of the cheesiest Shlock films I've ever seen. Even Skipping through all of the unbelievable crud that makes up the body of this turkey, They save the Topper for last - The Plane Lands ON FIRE, and the passengers mill about like zombies in a George Romero movie, sauntering off the aircraft, and then moving no more than TEN FEET from the burning jetliner. Aw sure folks, take your time... The Aircraft is only in Danger of

BLOWING UP...

Claudia Christian is the Only redeeming factor in this movie, it looks like She, at least, memorized the script, and didn't learn Her lines in-between takes. Avoid, Avoid, Avoid.
