Storyline

Having taken the blame for an accident beyond his control, pilot Mike Hogan has been on administrative leave indefinitely; however when the airline is desperately short of staff, he is offered to be first officer and accepts, without enthusiasm, received with disdain by the well-connected commander. Surprisingly his come-back proves less then routine, as the captain gets knocked out and a collision as well as a murderer being transported by police require courageous action from Mike, his crew and several passengers, including soccer star Ty Conner. Written by KGF Vissers

21st century airline rubbish
13 December 2006 | by uniqueabbaSee all my reviews

Just watched yet another airline disaster.

2 flight attendants on a long haul flight, rubbish.

A pilot pulled off passenger list and made to fly in place of an out of hours pilot, rubbish.

Aircraft shown takes off as one aircraft, looks totally different in air, again looks different on landing. Special effects rubbish, looked like a school project.

Decompression: No masks appear automatically for ages, no automatic announcement made due to decompression.

No landing emergency drill followed, no brace positions called out for emergency landing by either Captain or flight attendants.

Why do the film studios not get an airline adviser in and ask what the drills are for such occurrences. Utter rubbish, corny lines and unknown actors who will no doubt never work again.
