One of a series of two-hour made-for-TV movies that feature most of the main cast (and some recurring cast members) of "Emergency!" after its run as a regular series. In this outing, an ill-fated DC-8 crashes down on a Los Angeles subdivision after a mid-air collision with a small plane (which lands in the LA River). Our heroes Gage and DeSoto are trapped while treating a young girl at her house; meanwhile, Squad 51 gets clobbered by one of the DC-8's engines! Written by Jason R. DeCesare
