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 »
A very decent piece of vintage television, but lacking in the some of the qualities that made TZ great. The strength here is that you have ordinary, rational, and believable characters making a journey into strange territory. However, I would have liked more direct plot involvement to have happened to one of them. The special effect that you see sixteen minutes in is a little, well, primitive. I don't know who did that but you can easily see who didn't .
TZ regular actor Paul Comi makes his second fantastical journey on the show, having traveled to Mars in 'People Are Alike All Over'(series one). With all this experience he's the right man to psychoanalyze the estranged returning astronaut in 'The Parallel' (series four) I should think.
