Storyline

Over 300 people are believed to be held hostage in a Boeing 747 enroute from Sydney, Australia, to Los Angeles, California. The plane, under command of veteran pilot Captain John Prescott, is two hours from land; however, early reports suggest that a biochemical device hidden onboard the plane is timed to detonate within the hour. The device, believed to contain a nerve gas ten times deadlier than the Sarin gas released in a Tokyo subway in 1995, is reported to be tied to a countdown trigger with less than an hour remaining. Apparently disguised within passenger carry-on luggage, the bomb seems to have been planted not by a political terrorist, but by a madman acting in hopes of revenge. Alerted to the man's presence in Australia, both governments have begun the chase. The American FBI, present in Australia for security preparations in advance of the upcoming 2000 Olympic Games, have dispatched agents to work in collaboration with Australian police forces. Details at this point are ... Written by DANIEL

Trivia

All external airplane shots are taken from Executive Decision (1996), so the fictitious airline had to have the same name as in that movie, "Oceanic". See more »

Goofs

When they are cleared to descend to 9000 ft, the captain repeats this clearance by "cleared to descend to 90", which is a flight level. You can't mix the two. See more »

One of TBS's best originals!
21 May 2000 | by (Alberta, Canada) – See all my reviews

This is a great show. They put suspense into saving, not the world, but a single 747. And it's no secret agent doing it. It's just a regular pilot. And his co-pilot. Original plot about a psycho out for revenge. He bombs a plane, and while they have to disarm it, the FBI's gotta catch him in order to find out how to disarm the bomb. When he dies, the greatest (and almost only) hope for the plane explodes itself. What's kind of stupid is the moment they think they've disarmed the bomb- almost the very second- they learn there's a back-up trigger. But it's still a lot of suspense for 1 plane. I'm impressed with TBS.
