Goofs

During final approach, there are no changes made to the throttles, flaps, or speed brake. IF she was able to land successfully, without staling, in the touchdown zone, it would be almost impossible for her to stop the plane before running off the end of the runway at that speed. He also never went over how to steer the plane once on the ground. See more »

Do not be fooled
19 July 2002 | by jonas2002See all my reviews

Do not be fooled of the cover or poster of the movie (which shows a Boeing 747 - the plane used in the movie is a smaller Boeing 727). Low budget aviation movie. Lot of people disliked the lead character Nicole (played by Elisha Cuthbert) but in my opinion she saved the movie from total disaster. The DVD offers good picture for being low budget production.
