Flight 323 from Burbank, California of Hub Weber's Commonwealth Airlines crashes after an explosion over Nebraska. National Transport Security (NBSC) chief Reese Faulkner hands the investigation team for the first time to perfectionist workaholic Al Cummings, but has to supervise his PR incompetence. Aboard were a Nobel Prize winner who received death threats, an FBI-conducted criminal and a mobster who smuggled a victim in trunk. The team also examines possible pilot errors or technical trouble. Meanwhile Al has a conflict with his son Pete, whose drivers license was suspended. Written by KGF Vissers

This movie crashed and burned long before the plane went down
23 March 2004 | by (Cleveland, Ohio) – See all my reviews

In the first 20 minutes, every cliche possible was trotted out by the hack writer and director. There was the NTSB primary investigator with the tortured family life; the politically-tortured NTSB board member played by [I can kill ANY TV] Ted McGinley; the tortured father of a crash victim; and the torturing sleazy ambulance-chasing lawyer.

Hollywood still has no concept of the fragility of aircraft. The crashed plane was a 737 and it was mostly sitting on the ground like a hippo who decided to take a nap. The first third of the fuselage was intact, the rear half of the plane was intact and the debris field showed no wings or engines. Most of the people should have walked away in light of how many people survived that plane that got shredded in Iowa after it lost its hydraulics. Most of this TV plane wasn't even burned.

It reminded me of the scene in "Air Force One" where the 747 hits the water and then skips along like it's made of inch-thick steel.

The show was so bad it was impossible to watch. Even my wife, who is more accepting than I, was commenting on technical flaws. What had me stunned was how this POS could ever get made. Are the producers of these things so used to clichés that they can't even recognize them? Somebody read this script and said: Yes, I want to spend a million bucks making this real. I wish I was the guy's next appointment. I have title to a wonderful bridge in New York that I'd sell cheap.
