When Major Masters is coming in for a crash landing, he first hits a high voltage tower and shreds it with his right wing. Instead of the aircraft slewing to the right from impact, it continues on straight with no damage to the right wing. He then crash lands on a highway and slides wheels up down the highway, his right wing neatly cutting off wooden telephone poles. Again, he continues straight, not slewing right and when the plane comes to a stop by the fuel truck, there is no damage to the right wing. See more »
Someone dusted off one of the old Airport scripts and decided to make a film of it in 2005. Though it was a genre left in the Seventies I have to admit that while quite unrealistic it sure did make for some exciting viewing.
Billionaire Kevin Dobson charters a jumbo 747 for his bratty and spoiled daughter Briane Davis and the passengers are her equally spoiled and rich friends on a private party from Los Angeles to Sydney, a nice 13 hour flight. Hired to go along is Major Antonio Sabato, Jr. who is on ice as it were waiting out a hearing about a difficult Crash Landing he made.
Who'd have thought his piloting skills as well as fighting skills would be needed. A group of terrorists kill the flight crew and board in their disguises and take over the plane. The object being one hefty ransom for Davis from Dobson.
In that really big plane Sabato leads Davis to safety and then starts doing a number on the terrorists that would make Lorenzo Lamas sit up and take notice.
Also helping out on the ground is an army team on a small atoll led by Michael Pare who race against time to clear a runway.
I have to admit the film while not the greatest had a nice level of Indiana Jones type excitement. All the film needed to be an Airport sequel was George Kennedy as Joe Patroni.
