Made-for-TV air disaster thriller starring Eric Roberts. Former airline pilot Hogan (Roberts) finds himself persuaded to cover for a sick co-pilot on a transatalntic journey from London to the US. However, shortly after take-off the cargo doors blow off, the pilot is injured and Hogan finds himself having to deal with an uncontrollable plane and an uncontrollable group of passengers (one of whom is a murderer on his way to trial). He finds comfort and help from one of the flight attendants (who also happens to be a former girlfriend) while he manoeuvres the plane through a thunderstorm and, hopefully, to safety. Sound familiar?
