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 worst movie that I have seen in several years. Not interesting enough to watch to see how bad it is. Your time would be better spent knitting while listening to old Lawrence Welk broadcasts. It is unfortunate that the star of Staship Trooper had to stoop to this level. The only redeeming value was seeing an SR71 in action although it made only a limited appearance. This films budget should have been donated to the Haitian relief effort. I saw the movie on Cinemax during prime time slot. How a pay cable channel plans on staying in business with this kind of presentation in the seven pm time slot is beyond my understanding.
