R | | Drama, Thriller
An airline pilot saves almost all his passengers on his malfunctioning airliner which eventually crashed, but an investigation into the accident reveals something troubling.
While the movie has been criticized for inaccurately portraying pilots and the physics of flying a plane, many alcoholics have stated that it accurately portrays addiction. Certain Alcoholics Anonymous meetings use scenes from the movie to help visualize the effects of alcoholism.
Do you think you would be alive today if I was not flying that plane?
Ken Evans: No. We'd all be dead. But can you actually sit there and tell me that you were in top physical condition to fly that day?
When rolling out of the inverted flight and the command "Full flaps" is given the co-pilot pushes the flaps-lever forward which in every plane would retract the flaps.
