Recently watched this airplane drama on Amazon Prime. If you have Amazon Prime and are looking for a quick 1.5 hour flick, check it out. If you don’t have AP, don’t upgrade. Overall it’s a decent movie, but not worth going to Prime… though have Prime has other benefits.
From a pilot’s POV, the general flying scenes are refreshingly spot on. Never flown an Airbus although I’d guess I have a few hundred hours jumpseating/commuting upfront in the A320 family from a previous life. The flight deck used for this movie was very well done. Realistic procedures and crew call outs. Only a couple of communication phraseology flubs. This movie brought me back to post 9/11 when the airline industry hijacking procedures were completely overhauled.
No spoilers… The ending was similar to another movie most of us have seen. I even called it while watching with my wife. About 30 seconds before it happened it dawned to me, oh that’s why they did THIS so that they could do THAT.
