Special effects guru John Dykstra (Star Wars) brings his technical expertise to this futuristic vision of the maiden flight of the world’s first hypersonic transport jet. Touted as a technological breakthrough, the super-speed aircraft debarks amid much fanfare. All systems are “go” until a misguided missile renders the craft helpless, pushing it into a deadly orbit above Earth that threatens the total annihilation of its passengers. Time is running out for the Starflight One, a.k.a. Starflight: The Plane That Couldn’t Land, in this nerve-jangling space-age disaster movie directed by suspense specialist Jerry Jameson (Airport ’77, TV’s Superdome) with music by the great Lalo Schifrin (Coogan’s Bluff, Bullitt). Heading the all-star cast of this sci-fi adventure are Lee Majors (TV’s The Six Million Dollar Man) as the ship’s captain, Hal Linden (TV’s Barney Miller) as the scientific genius behind the machine, Tess Harper (Tender Mercies) as Majors’ wife, Lauren Hutton (Gator) as Majors’ lover and Ray Milland (Panic in Year Zero) as the high-powered chairman of the aerospace company.
