Perfect for jet airliner thriller freaks

I´m a great fan of films where planes are in trouble. I used to be afraid of flying, but by seeing movies like this my knowledge of how planes work has increased and now I really enjoy flying myself. Does this sound strange? Maybe, but knowledge always helps! This film differs from all other films I´ve seen in this genre. A surviving husband of a killed jet airliner pilot (who got the blame for the crash)becomes obsessed and gets his revenge by making other planes crash in the same way as his wife´s plane. A female investigator becomes his main target and she soon realizes that a terrorist is threatening an airline company and all their planes. But the boss wants to fly on and earn more money. And soon another plane crashes. Good tempo, good crash scenes and quite thrilling all the time. I give it 8/10.
