DescriptionFour aeroplane-themed dramas. In 'Airport' (1970), a plane bound for Rome is hijacked by a mad bomber, who proceeds to blow himself up. With a crippled plane in the sky and a stalled jet blocking the only runway on which it could land, ground crew chief Joe Patroni (George Kennedy) attempts to avert disaster. In 'Airport 1975' (1974), a plane en route from Washington DC to Los Angelese suffers a mid-air collision, killing its pilot. Ace pilot Alan Murdock (Charlton Heston) is lowered by helicopter into the stricken jet to save the day. In 'Airport '77' (1977), Jack Lemmon stars as the pilot of James Stewart's private 747 which crashes into the Atlantic Ocean after being sabotaged. A dangerous rescue bid follows. Finally, in 'The Concorde: Airport '79' (1979), evil genius Dr Kevin Harrison (Robert Wagner) launches a missile at a Concorde flight when he is threatened with the exposure of his foreign arms deals.
