Star-studded cast trapped in a plunging airplane… And only a death-defying rescue mission can save them!
Columbia Airlines’ flight 409, piloted by Captain Stacy, is on its way from Washington, D.C. to Los Angeles when it is struck by a small plane, leaving a gaping hole in the nose of the giant aircraft. Stacy is critically injured and his co-pilot killed, forcing chief stewardess Nancy Pryor to take the controls. Back on the ground, a daring rescue mission is planned: former jet pilot Alan Murdoch is to be lowered from a helicopter into the yawning hole of the 747 to land it safely.
It’s a treacherous mission and one of the most spectacular stunts ever filmed!
