About the Movie
Matchless intrigue soars out of the sky at supersonic speed in this incredible tale of airborne suspense derived from Arthur Hailey's all-time best seller. Susan Blakely headlines the star-studded, tension-packed international drama as a jet-setting TV reporter who puts everyone on board a Moscow-bound Concorde in jeopardy when she becomes the target of her former lover, traitorous arms smuggler Robert Wagner. The lives of Alain Delon, Sylvia Kristel, Eddie Albert, Bibi Andersson, Charo, John Davidson, Martha Raye, Cicely Tyson, David Warner and Mercedes McCambridge hang in the balance amid flying missiles and exploding bombs in this enthralling globe-trotting adventure.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Aeronautically and otherwise, it's a bumpy trip.
Rotten: A deafening sonic yawn signs off this desperate finale to Universal's Arthur Hailey-inspired quartet of in-flight entertainments.
Classic Disaster Movie
It would not be a good movie if it did not have George Kennedy in it. Pretty predictable plot, but seeing the Concord flying makes it a decent movie.
#1 fav airport movie of all
P - U
What a stinker of a movie trying to cash in on the original movie's name. Cast except for George Kennedy is a bunch of hacks and Kennedy must have needed a quick payday to do the film.
