What's slower than a speeding bullet, and able to hit tall buildings at a single bound?

Alcoholic pilot, Ted Striker has developed a fear of flying due to wartime trauma, but nevertheless boards a passenger jet in an attempt to woo back his stewardess girlfriend. Food poisoning decimates the passengers and crew, leaving it up to Striker to land the plane with the help of a glue-sniffing air traffic controller and Striker's vengeful former Air Force captain, who must both talk him down.

Die unglaubliche Reise in einem verrückten Flugzeug

Die komplette Besatzung eines Flugzeugs wird durch den Genuss verdorbenen Fischs flugunfähig gemacht. Glücklicherweise ist ein des Fliegens leidlich mächtiger Passagier, der ehemalige und geschockte Vietnam-Pilot Ted, an Bord. Der hat den übel riechenden Fisch verschmäht und versucht, seinen Ängsten und den gut gemeinten, aber falschen Funk-Tipps zum Trotz, das Flugzeug heil zu landen.
