The High and the Mighty
- 2 hr 27 min
A veteran officer on a commercial airflight is haunted by a previous flight in which a crash occurred and his wife and young child were killed. The younger captain of the flight also has some reservations about the flight as well, as he believes the crew to be too inexperienced and the plane to be too old to be in use. As the flight takes off, things begin to go awry, as the engine gives out and the crew are forced to take emergency precautions.
