This kind of scheme was largely used in the late sixties and seventies,
especially with the AIRPORT series for the big screen; and not only,
how many TVMs were talking about disappearance of airliners, or
problems the crew and passengers had to deal with? How many? Lots of
them. This tale is of course speaking of an airplane who suddenly
disappears from the radar screen. And around this, the audience is
given an accurate study of several people involved with the passengers
or crew of the flight. One scene very shocking, although no
spectacular: the one in which the airline executive shows his wrath
because of the possible loss, because of the plane disappearance, of a
fish shipment destined to restaurants...No matter the passengers. No
comment. Interesting drama yarn, perfect for TV, especially without
really suspense or climax as we can find for large screen audiences.
Deserves to be discovered again, and don't forget this was a direct,
live show back in the late fifties. A real performance. Worth watching.
