Storyline

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 rcs0411@yahoo.com

flying nowhere
16 October 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is totally awful,in fact so bad that Plan 9 from Outer Space becomes a masterpiece. Why Plan 9? The interior of the super plane resembles the flying saucer set of said film.MFI comes to mind. The whole film looks as though it was made for less than 1000 dollars.What has happened to Casper Van Dien? Brilliant in Starship Troopers,here looking old, tired, bored stiff as you will be on looking at this drivel, this once promising actor has lost his way,plus the usual crackpot performance from Brad Dourif.Does he know no other style of acting? As for the rest of the cast, nothing can be said in any ones favour. There is also no excuse now days that a film is made for TV. Many are better than the current load of multiplex crap ie Real Steel,The Three Musketeers and Johnny English 2. Just catch recent TV made Sci Fi movie The Lost Future (2010) to see what i mean.Enough said.
