American based Federation World Airlines has just acquired a Concorde jet, which will make its inaugural commercial flight from Washington, D.C. to Paris, and then to Moscow as a goodwill gesture prior to the 1980 Olympic Games. Among those on board is Maggie Whelan, a television reporter, who is taking both legs of the trip. Just after boarding at Dulles International Airport, she receives documents conclusively and unequivocally stating that her boyfriend, Dr. Kevin Harrison, the Chairman of Harrison Industries, an aerospace contractor, is complicit in illegally selling arms to enemy regimes. Regardless, Maggie loves Kevin, who vows to do the right thing by making a public statement to his illegal activities. Maggie also intends on making an on-air report of the story once she arrives in Moscow. Kevin, however, has other thoughts. He plans on destroying the documents, the most convenient way being to bring down the Concorde with Maggie aboard, initially having the attack on the ...Written by

When Avery Schreiber's character is signing to his daughter, he is uses the American Sign Language alphabet and signs. Both characters are Russian, so they would use the Russian Manual Alphabet. When he spells his daughter's name, Irina, he uses the American Sign Language letter "I", which does not not exist in the Russian Manual Alphabet. Her name would start with a different character.

Capt. Joe Patroni:
Wait a minute! That perfume of yours smells awfully familiar.
[Patroni gives a funny look to Metrand. He and Isabelle are surprised that Patroni figures out they are involved]
[to Metrand; angry tone]
Je te remercie! On peut avoir confiance en toi!
[subtitle translation: Thanks a lot! You can have confidence in you!]
Capt. Joe Patroni:
What did she say?
Capt. Paul Metrand:
Probably the same as you say in English.

When this film was re-edited for showing on the ABC network in 1982, nearly 20 minutes of additional footage was added, most of it specially shot more than two years after the original film completed production. See more »
Have you ever watched unintentional comedy? Well, this is it. There are so many absurdities, I couldn't keep track. The best scenes are when Robert Wagner decides to shoot down the plane with missiles and pass it off as a mechanical failure, Charo tries to smuggle a Chichiauah on the plane and, when it's discovered, claims it's her seeing eye dog, John Davidson's hair stays in place when the plane flies upside down, when a missile gets close to the plane, pilot George Kennedy rolls down the pilot's seat window (at the speed of sound) to shoot at it, Jimmy Walker smokes weed in the bathroom stall, and when stewardess Sylvia Crystal says seductively "You pilots are such men!", Kennedy replies, "They don't call it a cock-pit for nothing!" What floors me is that after the first disaster, the plane takes off for another flight and the passengers get back on! If I were a passenger, no way would I board that plane! All this is backed up by special effects that wouldn't pass for an episode of "Bewitched." If you can find this movie in the 99 cent section, I recommend it. I laughed more than I had laughed in weeks. It's great entertainment in the worst way possible.
