So some buddies of mine and I were having a discussion about the crappiest movies about flying / aviation ever made. Just to keep the discussion on the same page, we ruled out humourous movies (Airplane, Hot Shots, etc). What are some thoughts about this dubious title out there?

There was a thread a short while back about this. I don't remember the title but something was mentioned that seemed to take the cake. I believe it involved some killer virus on a plane and they had to make an emergency landing. There was a whole long list about why that movie was so bad on that thread.

Was it Pandora's Clock? The book was a lot better than the movie...

Perhaps it was the poor made-for-TV movie based on a fairly good Nelson DeMille book, Mayday?

I only saw this film once, but I found it rather amusing and captivating at the same time (it was not a comedy, by the way).

It was "Julie", from 1956 and starred Doris Day. Doris Day's character was married to an insanely jealous husband who finally admitted to killing her first husband. As a review of the film from Amazon states,

"Doris is an airline stewardess/hostess/flight attendant in "Julie", and actually participated in a three-week training course for flight attendants in preparation for making this movie.

The climax of the film has Julie (Doris Day) being forced to take the controls of her pilot-less commercial airliner. It's all a bit far afield from reality, but great fun anyway. The most (unintentionally) hilarious portion of the final reel is, in my opinion, when we see the air-traffic controller who's "talking Julie down" standing right out there on the runway as Julie brings in the heavy Douglas DC-6 propliner! The controller is standing just outside his airport vehicle, tied to it via a long microphone cord, right on the runway itself, as he's talking Julie in. It just struck me as hysterical, and certainly "dates" the available technology of the era. If that situation were to occur today, I'm doubting that a man would need to PHYSICALLY stand on the runway, without the aid of any radar scope, in order to help the amateur pilot bring the plane in.  Smile "

The consensus was that that movie was the "unintentional worst" ever made.

Runner-up was "Die Hard 2". An absolute atrocity in terms of plot and believability - planes circling over IAD with no alternate airports anywhere, a plane landing without 600 foot minimum runway visibility, and destroying a departing 747 by lighting a trail of leaking fuel. But the worst was the sight of Bruce Willis calling his wife while she is on an airplane from a Pacific Bell payphone.

Honorable mention: "SST: Death Flight", an ABC Million Dollar Movie from the late 1970's that was unintentionally hysterical. Every B movie actor (who wasn't on "The Love Boat" at the time!) was on America's first SST jetliner, built by Cutlass Aviation, but sabotaged by a jealous test pilot who wasn't given the reins of Captain. Unwittingly, he releases the "Senegal Flu" on board, and the plane must change its destination from Paris to Dakar, Senegal.

It was, however, the first time I learned of the existence of Senegal.

Die Hard 2 came up quite a few times in the original discussion. Another popular choice was "FlightPlan". Distraught mom + shifty air marshall + FA in on the plot (always a necessity for a bad aviation flick) all added up to one hell of a crappy flick in my mind

I actually liked Pandora's Clock for some odd reason. The Robert Ulrich movie I wasn't too impressed with though.

I didn't like Nowhere to Land, which had Jack Wagner as the Captain on a flight from SYD to LAX. What really irritated me is how in this movie the same airline from Executive Decision is used (Oceania), and they had to take it even farther and use all the external shots of the plane from Executive Decision.

I thought that movie was alright it had some bad parts but come on know die hard was never meant as a real believable scenario maybe the first one but 2 and 3 were a little far fetched. and maybe this isn't the right thread for it but explain the problems with that movie please.

I'm not familiar with "Boeing, Boeing"...but if it's in the same sentence with "Airport 77" then it can't be that great

Agreed, it was an insult to Concorde!! Did you know the aircraft used for this film is the aircraft that crashed in Paris on 25th July 2000..... F-BTSC.

Also, not really a movie as such, but there was a thread from a Canadian chap a week or so ago claiming to "know what goes on in the cockpit" and making a movie about his "near-death experience" on a rejected take-off....... For me, THAT was the worst I've seen.

In my opinion, without a doubt, it has to be the made for tv movie "Panic in the Skies." It's got Robert Guillaume and Eric Estrada, for Christ's sake! It's full of all of all the horrible distaster movie cliches. The 747 gets struck by lightning, killing the pilots. The autopilot goes bezerk, and randomly chooses airports to land at, including a hilarious scene where it tries to land at a tiny airstrip in the middle of nowhere. A computer nerd somehow attaches his laptop to the autopilot and fixes it. A dog in the cargo hold gets loose goes on an attacking spree. There's so much more crazy stuff going on, I can't remember it all. I found my copy in the $5 movie bin at Walmart, and if you can find a copy, I highly reccommend getting it. It is the worst of the worst.

There was a laughable made for TV movie on ABC back in the era of catasrophic crap the late 70s early 80s featuring the maiden voyage of an SST.

Starflight: The Plane That Couldn't Land (1983) (TV)
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0086357/.

Then there was another one from that same era where another SST had it's maiden flight with contest winners and some kind of funky virus breaks out on the bird. No one would let the distressed flight land at their airport so, this plane has to make it all the way to the beautiful environs of Senigal, on little fuel, a wing and a prayer with all your typical airliner disaster cliche subplots.
I'm having a major league brain fart in remembering it's title but this one also aired as an ABC Movie of The Week back in the Jimmy Carter or Ronald Reagan era.

2 come to my mind.
Hostage Flight, 1985. About a hijacked DC10 flying from DFW to DTW, but diverts to JFK when the French, Middle-Eastern, and German terrorists hijack it. The lame story about all the passengers, played by mostly B-list actors. Only Ned Beatty and Mitch Ryan who played the captain deliver the good performances. The aircraft was a leased, World Airways DC10-30 with the logos painted out. The fictional airline was Trans Allied 136. The hijacked airplane was then taken to LHR, on which shortly after departure, the passengers retake the aircraft, but the communication is disabled during flight when the overhead panel is damaged.
The 2nd one:International Airport, 1985. starring George Kennedy as Rudy Van Luben, a technical engineer for the fictional ConWest Airlines DC10(Obviously a leased Western Airlines DC10-10) that is theatened by a note containing a bomb threat. It's turns up after the aircraft leaves LAX bound for HNL. It turns out to be a hoax, and after crunching the numbers, the airport tells the captain to descend the aircraft, open the cargo door, and jettison the baggage containors into the ocean. After this, the captain, brilliantly figures out the massive fuel burn,to which they turn the aircraft around and head back to LAX. Pretty cheesy, highly implausable, and wreckless Luckily, no airlines like ConWest exist in real life. The captain is played by Robert Vaughn, who does a good job. He looks the part. The overworked, and and chauvanistic ATC tower chief is played by the late Bill Bixby(the Incredible Hulk) who is threatened by the new chick, 80's hottie Connie Selleca(Mrs John Tesh). Other people in the cast, Danny Ponce playing the illegal immigrant child that George Kennedy wnats to adopt, Vivian Leigh, who plays the destraught woman who wirtes the bomb threat, and Robert Reed, the drunken lout who plans on commiting suicide until his terminally-ill, estranged wife(Susan Blakely)flies down form SFO to save him from himself.
Both were Movie's Of the Week, so low-budget, b-list cast.

Others that were pretty good because of attention to detail as far as airlines
1. Raid on Entebbe was pretty good. Pretty accurate except for the Airbus cabin that was actually a DC10 cabin mock-up. The Air France cabin crew, (which did in real life elect not to be released unless everyone was released) was well played particularly by the captain. He recieved alot of criticism by AF and by the French gov't for not taking the offer to be released. But I highly respect that. He said he had a duty for not ony his crew, but his passengers.

2. White Nights, 1986. Starring Mikhail Baryshnikov and and Gregory Hines. A British Orient Airlines 747 crash lands at a Russian Air Force Base after a flight deck fire forces an unscheduled landing in the Soviet Union. The aircraft looks like an EI 747-100/200, but can't be sure because the reg is invisible. It crashes as it overuns the short runway.

3. Skyjacked with Charlton Heston. Can't really remember it, but if I remember right, it was a 707 hijacked by a russian spy disguised as a US Army officer who commandeers the aircraft and flies it to Russia. The aircraft is a World Airways Boeing 707-373C. The double agent gets shot as he gets off the aircraft.
4. The Delta Force
Based on the TWA Flight 847 that was apparently hijacked by Islamic Jihad terrorists. The airline, ATW(American Travel Ways) flight 282, a Boeing 707-139B, N778PA(leased from the Israeli charter carrier, Maof Air) traces the route form ATH-FCO and on to New York. The aircraft is hijacked minutes after take-off from ATH. It goes to BEY after Abdul Rafi(played by Robert Forster) of the New World Revolution hijacks it. A german flight attendant, Ingrid(portaying a similar role played by Lindsay Wagner of the late Uli Derickson, a TWA cabin attendant credited with saving the lives of many of the hostages on TWA 847) can't separate the jewish names as directed by the hijackers, because of the guilt of being german, and the memories of the holocaust. The US Army's Delta Force is dispatched from Ft Bragg to rescue the hostages, in which some are spread around Beriut. A US Navy diver is killed and then thrown from the plane in Algiers. The Delta Force flies to Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv to train with IDF special forces. They train on a aircraft mockup and practise take-over senarios. They go to Beyrouth and rescue the hostages. One thing I noticed, the Delta Force arrives on an Israeli C-130(the 4X-*** reg gives it away) with a an American Flag hastenly put on the nose. The producers did pay attention to detail, when actually using an MEA airstair when the 707 was at the airport while being held captive. They also had "Aeroporto de Beyrouth" signs in some of the scenes. I mention this, becuase none of the movie was shot in Beriut, only in Israel. Noted actors:
Chuck Norris as Capt McCoy,
Lee Marvin as Col Alexander(his last performance, he died shortly before the movie's release),
Martin Balsam as Ben Kaplan,
Joey Bishop as Harry Goldman
Shelly Winters as Edie Kaplan
Susan Strasburg as Debra Levine
Lainie Kazan, as Sylvia Goldman
George Kennedy as a christian priest.

My vote for the #1 most horrible terrible, improbable, ridiculous slap in the face to aviation and its movie portrayals.


Also I cant remember the name of it but I found a couple years ago at Wal-Mart in the $1 bin (beat ya FlyingNanook) it had Farrah Fawcett and Sonny Bono starring and Robert Stack I believe was the captain. Plot was something along the lines of a demented detective hellbent on killing a pax because he got away with murdering the detectives cop brother. A 747, London bound I think.
