It was retired from active service with NASA on 17 December 2004 after almost 50 years flying service having first flown on June 11, 1955, and entering service with NASA on 8 June 1959.

One Of The Six Stinkers In The Series
20 July 2014 | by See all my reviews

A test pilot finds his world is moving in very slow motion.

I have reviewed many of the wonderful Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea episodes on the IMDb, however whenever that series did BORING low-budget shows like this, where one or two people would spend the hour running around on an empty set...I was not happy!

So I am not happy with The Premonition, the hour is made worse by the fact that it is the 2nd last show of the series: what a way to go out!

Granted, The Premonition has the odd good moment, but that footage of frozen planes/people is a taste of things to come in a few episodes of Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea (1964-68).
