What about '80, the Concorde, upside down with the captains arm out of the window firing flares to confuse a missile while the floor cracked up.
I can't believe anyone made that movie. I was embarrased when I saw it, especially whn he kissed the control column and said, "thank you sugar".

And of course, we have none other than former great silent screen goddess, Gloria Swanson, seated in first class with her secretary. She talks into her tape recorder (he memoirs) as the plane is making its emerg landing:
"Here you go, darlings! I never wanted the Damn thing published, anyway!"

Don't forget Erik "CHIPS" Estrada as the F/E in Airport 1975......
"....My mother loves me," spouts Julio (Estrada) after another round of incessant flirting with the FA's.
Airport (orig.) was indeed the best one; but I liked the next 2 as well, for various reasons.
The real howler was '79--Concorde!! A scream! (They used cardboard cutouts for effects, I think!!)
Remember one with Robert (Mike Brady) Reed as the pilot of a supersonic jet with hazardous cargo??
SST--Death Flight it was originally called. A new title was issued later. Oh yeah...Martin Milner (Adam 12) was also in it.
