When a new airplane that's equipped with a new computer that can fly the plane on its own, is about to have its first flight. But the son of the owner decides to upload more software, he doesn't bother to check if there are any viruses with it. And he also invites some potential investors to try it. So the plane appears to be working well but suddenly it veers off course and it can't be shut down. When the military learns of this and fears what if something happens if it's over a populated area; decides to shoot it down along with everyone on board. The man who built the computer whose wife is among the passengers thinks if he can get on board he might be able to shut it down and regain control of the plane. So the military using a new plane gets him on board. But what he didn't know is that both pilots are incapacitated so there's no one who can fly the plane. Written by
At the beginning of the film, when the plane is - according to the pilot - flying at 25,000 feet, the landing gear is down and the flaps are extended. This is the typical landing situation (low speed) and not cruising speed. See more »
The reviews for this movie are wholly inaccurate, it wasn't as good as that, Airplane disaster movies are hard to get right and the makers of this one didn't try very hard. The acting is truly dreadful. Possibly because the actors involved thought "thought what's the point? The only way for our careers to survive this load of utter tosh is for it to be totally forgettable" The mistakes are glaring, Push three wires into a hole in the console and hey presto the radio is working again ( I think I saw something similar in an episode of Mr, Bean, and that got a big laugh) Then, with the help of the air traffic controller, a course change, a push down on the yolk , a gear down, ( in fact I'm not sure if he even told her how to put the gear down he just said . Put the gear down. ) an unqualified woman flying the plane does a text book landing. This is a movie that is well worth missing.
