I just saw pandora's clock on TV, and I thought it was really good. I love all movies based around airliners. I love nowhere to land! Did anybody happen to tape this movie (pandora's clock)? If so, I'd love it if I could get a copy made (I'll pay for the tape + shipping). I searched ebay and didnt find it, I found the book of it, but not the movie. IMDB.com didnt show it available on vhs either.

Anyone on the west coast, if its on there, I believe it started at 6pm or 630, i forget. It was on the FOXFAM (FOX FAMILY) channel, and was either 1 1/2 hour or 2 hours long.

Anyone over there, check to see if it's on! It is a really good movie, and anyone who watches it, if you could record it and email me ( id4rox@stny.rr.com ) I'd appreciate it.

Please post if anyone else who saw it has any opinions on the movie, or if anyone will record it.

I found it pretty good when I watched it a year back. Hated the vague ending though.

I have seen the movie around 3 times, and each time it is still great. It seems more realistic than other airplane based movies I have seen. Very good Movie!

as a matter of fact, the movie started at 4pm on the east coast, and ended at 8pm, a full 4 hours (with commercials) It was a great movie, though the ending was too open ended.

In the end the Captain gets a call at his house that the flight attendant who gave mouth-to-mouth to the guy who brought it on the plane had gotten all the symptoms and died of cardiac arrest.... talk about an open ending.

I saw that movie a few years ago in NZ, I think. In fact, it was done as a 2 nighter over here. Quite interesting... The book is by John Nance, isn't it? I read Medusa's Child by him, really good. Another one as well, the name escapes me for now.

On the subject of aviation movies, how many have you seen a 747 from 'Oceanic Airlines' in? I have seen it in the following

*Executive Decision (That one with the Stealth Fighter)
*Turbulence (I think)
and a couple of others too...

How did that learjet do M0.85+ to keep up with the B747? Most Lears can only do M0.81.
