Pandora's Clock?

Mon Nov 06, 2000 10:37 am

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.

The ending in the book was much better, but still a good movie.

the oceanic plane was originally used in executive decision, then used again for nowhere to land. you could still see where they painted the hole over the wing for exec. dec.

I am sorry to keep asking questions. What was the illness the guy had? I remember in the beginning the captain saying on the mike "why do you want us to come back if a guy has an influenza?

Thanks a bunch

RE:Good Book

This has been said before, but I thought I'd add it here too. John Nance the author writes things that we aviation lovers just go nuts about. And yes, I think the book was better than the movie...
