An FBI agent takes on a plane full of deadly and venomous snakes, deliberately released to kill a witness being flown from Honolulu to Los Angeles to testify against a mob boss.
(at around 44 minutes) When the male flight attendant puts the snake in the microwave, he can be seen hitting the 'snake' preset button on that microwave - a somewhat unusual preset for a microwave.
Go, get outta here. Go!
(at around 1h 3 mins) After the first officer is incapacitated, the aircraft is shown in a steep descent. It goes from 32,400 feet to 26,200 feet in approximately three-quarters of a second. That would translate to around four hundred ninety-six thousand (496,000) feet per minute, or four thousand nine-hundred and sixty (4,960) knots vertical velocity. The aircraft would have come apart long before this speed, as it is impossible to achieve that in this kind of vehicle.
Before the credits, there is a quick flash of a open-mouthed snake ready to bite the camera. During the credits, Cobra Starship's "Snakes on a Plane (Bring It!)" music video plays.
