Description: On the maiden flight of the first hypersonic commercial plane which can make the flight from New York City to London in four hours, a minor disaster occurs resulting in the plane actually leaving the Earth’s atmosphere and orbiting around the globe. A lack of heat-resistant tiling prevents the plane from simply re-entering the atmosphere. With oxygen (and therefore time) running out, the crew of the plane and the crew on the ground must figure out a way to return the plane and its passengers to safety.

    Fond memories of this, and impossible to find anywhere, until now. Thank you so much. What a great movie of the week. John Dykstra does great work on the effects, and what a cast. Score by Lalo Schifrin, of “Dirty Harry” fame. Produced by Henry Winkler (Yes, The Fonz!)

    It was on later than my bedtime, but my mom let me stay up since ol’ $6m himself was in it.

    This one and the Susan Lucci one where she was Satan running a private spa with a Hellmouth. :D

    ANOTHER from the fantastic Made-For-TV ABC MOVIE OF THE WEEK Catalogue. (And one of the few that I missed, but not this time.)
    Thanks, Rarelust.

      Interesting as this was a made-for-TV movie. One of those great, cheesy, ones they were making n the 1980s.
      Thanks for this post.

        Maybe they’re thinking of Airplane II: The Sequel.

        It was played as a TV movie in the USA. In several European countrys,played at the theaters.I was watched it in Greece.

        Yeah, Wendel–I discovered that some of the ABC Movie Of The Week (and some from the other networks, CBS and NBC) got theatrical distribution in other countries (“The Last Dinosaur” and “The Bermuda Depths” being big examples). It’s just like another country’s theatrical release getting TV Releases here in The States (American International is famous for doing that here). PLUS, some of the same TV Movies here have the “same type of ‘faux theatrical poster’ promos, so it also works out that way (back to “Bermuda Depths”–I’m DYING to get a Decent Size Poster of THAT!).
