Airport '80 The Concorde

A deafening sonic yawn signs off this desperate finale to Universal's Arthur Hailey-inspired quartet of in-flight entertainments. A goodwill Washington-to-Moscow Concorde flight to celebrate the 1980 Olympics takes on its own heavy layer of irony, while the hazards of evasive action and depressurisation parallel the general drop in hysteria value, with even the passengers less problem-stricken than usual. An arms dealer taking disproportionate steps to cover his tracks is the cause of all cartoonish fuss.
