The Missing Plane
2 March 2016 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Thomas Banacek(George Peppard) is called in on a seemingly bizarre, perplexing case involving a charter jetliner that runs into trouble over the Nevada desert at night that makes a forced landing with six blown tires on an airstrip in a small town named Hangston that somehow goes missing the following morning! One of the three pilots who stayed behind to watch the plane is found dead, and the man who drove the other two pilots away that night also goes missing. Sterling Hayden plays a wealthy landowner named Tony Fowler who is the chief suspect, though there are others, including Victoria Principal as an alluring stewardess. Where did the plane go? Entertaining mystery creates a good atmosphere leading to the surprise twist ending. One of the best from this brief series.
