It's a clear day in L.A.; a jumbo jet needs to make an emergency landing. The radio traffic reporter gets word that the police have cleared a two-mile stretch of the 405 freeway from the 118 to Victory. A young man in an SUV seems to have the road to himself when he looks into his rear view mirror and sees the jet about to land on top of him. He floors it, complications befall him, and he and the jet are on a collision course with the Little Old Lady from Pasadena, driving slowly in her Lincoln. Miracles can happen, and the old woman gets the last word.Written by
Produced in three months by Hunt and Branit in their spare time. Extensive and highly convincing computer graphics rendering was done on their own two personal computers. See more »

In the original internet distribution the aircraft was clearly an American Airlines DC-10. In later distribution the word "American" was replaced with the word "Airliner" on the fuselage and the AA logo on the tail was blanked out. See more »
great shot film: what do you want for free !!!!
Considering that the LA freeway system has to be the world's largest open sewer, anything that can make light of it can't be too bad.
On a serious note, I wonder if this "movie" was inspired by the true story of a plane having to land on a racetrack because it ran out of fuel (something about a pounds / kilograms misunderstanding as to the amount of fuel in the tank)?
No-one else has mentioned the radio clip in the beginning. A very "real" sounding one. Or the ATC section, where the plane is identified as an "AM" one.
THe most surprising thing to me is that this thing is called a "movie". I"m not quite sure what I WOULD call it, but not that :-)
