A feud develops between two air traffic controllers: one cocky and determined while the other is restrained and laidback, which inevitably affects their lives.
Ed, can you take that Delta?
Ed Clabes: No, I can't take the Delta, my airspace is finite.
Barry Plotkin: Uh-oh, Ed's going down the drain.
Ed Clabes: I am NOT going down the drain.
Barry Plotkin: Oh yes you are. It happens every time you use the term "finite."
Several scenes show characters in the movie standing beneath landing jet airliners and being tumbled by the "turbulence." In fact, the downwash from the wings of a jet airliner during landing will not send a person tumbling, and won't have much effect at all other than to muss up the hair a bit. The jet blast from an airliner taking off is dangerous and can send people and vehicles behind it tumbling, but there is no particular danger beneath a landing aircraft.
