Whip Whitaker is a commuter airline pilot. While on a flight from Orlando to Atlanta something goes wrong and the plane starts to fly erratically. With little choice Whip crashes the plane and saves almost all on board. When he wakes up in the hospital, his friend from the airline union introduces him to a lawyer who tells him there's a chance he could face criminal charges because his blood test reveals that he was intoxicated with alcohol and cocaine.

Captain Whittaker and Hugh Lang visit the crash site. Lang describes the left wing hitting the ground, subsequent discussion between the two men implies that left wing hit the rear fuselage and drove the left engine nacelle into the fuselage. It's implied that this is what killed the four passengers. However, the view of the crashed plane clearly shows the left engine nacelle intact and attached to the outside of the fuselage. See more »
Oh! Oh, almost forgot- I got you some stroke mags. Been in the hospital, know what you need. Got Juggs, Hot Milfs and Eat Ass Masters. You just stroke it all day- you're a hero. If I was you, I'd just lay here, pulling on that thing all day long.

Lifted me up on the wings of flight
I liked this a lot. Because I'm a Denzel fan and even if I don't like a movie he is in, I still like it. He is one of those actors who has that effect on me. Either I'm a fanboy or he really is a great actor. I suggest he is a great actor. This is a way cool movie and too close to reality for comfort. I mean, don't they screen pilots before they fly full of booze? It seems a bit thin on the ground at times, given the seriousness of the subject matter but upon reflection, the way it ends, suggests this is a super intelligent way of dealing with the subject matter. It is my second favorite movie ever about alcoholism, as one of its central themes. For those who don't care about the subject of too much booze too often, it is just another very good Denzel movie.
