Did You Know?

Goofs

The missile fired from the F-18 is an AIM-9 Sidewinder. The Sidewinder is a short-range heat-seeking missile, and would have insufficient fuel to fly 480 miles to an airborne target. The operational range of the AIM-9 is about 11 miles. As a heat-seeker, it would not rely upon radar for guidance as shown in the movie. See more »

Glad I taped it
28 October 2005 | by (Wilmington,Delaware) – See all my reviews

I taped this movie so I could watch it after I read the book.The book was far better.In the book,the passengers who survived turned into zombies though oxygen deprivation and their actions threatened the survivors.One flight attendant was killed by them.There was a scene in the book where Kelly's character took off her pantyhose to close the cockpit door so the passengers wouldn't get in.Sadly that wasn't in the movie either.Also,I know that this was a TV movie,and that the acting wasn't going to be the greatest,but at least hire actors who can act well enough to get you caught up in the story,I'm specifically referring to Aidan and Kelly,somebody else said they acted like they were on a Disney World ride,and I agree.I kept looking at the tape timer to see how long it would be until it was over.If it comes on again,just tape it and watch something else.
