Storyline

Jay is ordered to fly Cessna flight 30771 from the States to Sydney, with stopovers at Honolulu, Pago Pago and Norfolk Island. He's joined by Frank, who flies another Cessna.

He contacts Gordon Vette by accident, the pilot of the ANZ 308, a plane with 88 passengers on board. He and his crew are the only ones who can save Jay. But to save him, they first have to find him... Written by Tony Kessen <rhkessen@cs.vu.nl>

Trivia

Near the end of the movie, where Jay finally lands his airplane and everyone at the airport is cheering, the camera focuses on two men, one a bit taller than the other, hugging and slapping each other in celebration of Jay's landing. These are the real Jay and Gordon Vette, as this movie is based on a true story. See more »

Goofs

When Jay looks up and sees the 737 piloted by Gordon, the cockpit lights are full bright. Flying at night, and attempting to see an aircraft, the cockpit lights would be off. The usual night illumination in the cockpit comes from the instrument panel. See more »

Quotes

Gordon Vette: 771, this is 308. What are your vital statistics?
Jay Parkins: I've gotten down to take a look at the ocean. Fuel gauge is low. Airspeed 110 knots. All I can see is... water and sky. I've been up there for 14 hours. Everything is starting to look the same.
Gordon Vette: Hang in there, 771. We're going to find you. Just call us on 121.5 every two minutes so we can determine whether we're within 200 miles of each other.
Jay Parkins: Will do, thanks. Listen, 308? You're not really out there for search and rescue, aren't you? I mean... ...

This film is a pleasant enough way to while away a Sunday afternoon. It's becoming something of a cult classic with students (in Britain) due to the casting- Scott Bakula will forever be associated with Dr Samuel Beckett but the more legendary of the two doctors surely has to be Dr Karl Kennedy.....
