Storyline

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.

But you and I know where she is. You and I know what's happened. So if some moment, any moment, you hear the sound of jet engines flying atop the overcast - engines that sound searching and lost - engines that sound desperate - shoot up ...

Amazing!
15 July 2006 | by (Middle TN) – See all my reviews

I was watching an episode of Bonaza tonight and knew I'd seen character actor John Anderson before...but where? I went to IMDb and looked up his screen credits and then it hit me...the Twilight Zone episode on a plane! You know a great performance when one episode makes such a deep impression...and this was the episode.

As said before, the ending was chilling. What makes this so great is the B&W film, the pace and music score. There was just an amazing feel about this series, and especially this episode. You don't really appreciate it until you see others attempt to duplicate.

This is a classic Zone!
