| Thank you Netflix! A fun Sunday morning brain drain!
Since this rare Shatner gem hadn't been available for sometime, I was thrilled to see it available for streaming on Netflix.

This is a fun "Made for TV" movie with some great stunts and decent special effects.

There seemed to be a rash of "celebrity" filled disaster flicks in the late 70s and early 80s. However this movie definitely gives some of the cheesier films a run for their money.

And any movie that allows more Shatner Toupological studies are just fine with me. And my goodness there were some great feats achieved by Bill's toupee during this opus!

And surely that wasn't fishing line wrapping all around that engine during the final crash.

Yes. Yes it was. And don't call me Shirley.
