When a deranged criminal is caught, he is then being transported by plane, along with some other criminals. Through a stroke of luck he is able to subdue the Federal agents assigned to bring him, free the other criminals, and take over the plane. He then threatens to crash the plane into a populated area unless his demands are met. The FBI agent who captured him then decides to get on the plane while in flight to do something. He does but things don't go as planned, and the criminal continues his plan to crash the plane unless the agent can do something, the military is going to shoot the plane down. Written by
I guess what amazes me the most is how poor a job the director did in editing and continuity of this film. It's bad enough that they used so much inflight footage of the "Airport 75" classic movie, but there are so many disconnects, it's screwy. First, the plane was supposed to make an emergency landing in San Bernadino or somewhere, when it was actually Salt Lake City. The airport scenes there showed the airfield from way back in the early 1970s, so it's not too close to the actual time frame of the movie at all. The crash/fire/rescue trucks even said "Salt Lake City Fire Department" on them. Then, the medical personnel on the plane after it landed had jumpsuits that said "Los Angeles City Fire Department EMS" on them.
The cockpit scenes showed a 3-engine plane's controls, when they were really flying in a 4-engine Boeing 747.
Oh, well, it was fun to watch anyway!
