This movie is about a crew of a passenger plane and consists of two parts. The first part tells about personal lives of the characters, their successes and failures, relationships inside their families and between each others.

The Aeroflot Tupolev Tu-154 aircraft appearing throughout the second part of the movie is registered "CCCP-85131", which is also its radio call sign. Immediately after its final lift-off, its registration changes to "CCCP-85179" (as a different scale model was used). See more »
Well, a lot of people in Europe and USA think that 99% percent of Russian films is dull boring stuff. Actually, it's right for many of them. However, 'The Crew' seems to be an exception. It tells us the story of three aircraft pilots; everyone of them with his own problems: a pregnant daughter (Timchenko), a lost child (Nenarokov), problems with woman (Skvortsov). But all of this is forgotten, when they need to make an awful race : from the burning city in the Middle East to Moscow. The burning airplane in the end of the film, and other technical tricks are really amazing. The common spirit of the film is not like that of western films-catastrophies, but it's more epic. Worth seeing, if you are interested in quiet films.
