Global Flight 33 is en route from London to New York in what appears to be a routine flight in a modern jetliner. Suddenly however, the jet's speed increases to an incredible 3000 knots and they arrive in New York rather quickly. Neither the captain or his well-trained crew can explain what happened - a strange tail-wind perhaps - but they are certainly not prepared for what they find as they survey the land below them.

The tower controller in 1939 identifies the airport the flight is headed to as LaGuardia. Though this airport was founded in that year, it was called North Beach until the New York City mayor Fiorello LaGuardia left office in 1945. See more »
John Anderson stars as the captain of Global Jetliner 33, which is a passenger jet en route from London to New York in what was a routine flight until it hits a mysterious tail wind that gives them the amazing sensation of speed, and the crew are shocked to find out that they have somehow traveled back in time 65 million years to the age of the dinosaurs(one is viewed out the window). Desperate, they retrace their route and go back along it, but don't quite make it back to their own year... Can they ever make it back home before they run out of fuel? Memorable episode takes its fantastic premise and handles it with authenticity and a commendable matter-of-fact, no-nonsense approach that works remarkably well.
