Goofs

When the terrorists shoots the hole in the side of the aircraft, the Captain notes a loss of fuel and the hole shows a liquid coming out. The fuel lines do not extend that far forward or aft of the wing. All the fuel lines are located in the wing box fuel tank area, where the wings connect to the fuselage. See more »

Airport '05
12 November 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

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.
