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

The persons and events in this film are fictitious - fortunately! A masterpiece of off-the-wall comedy, Airplane! features Robert Hays as an ex-fighter pilot forced to take over the controls of an airliner when the flight crew succumbs to food poisoning; Julie Hagerty as his girlfriend/stewardess/co-pilot; and a cast of all-stars including Robert Stack, Lloyd Bridges, Peter Graves, Leslie Nielsen, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar... and more. Their hilarious high jinks spoof airplane disaster flicks, religious zealots, television commercials, romantic love... the list whirls by in rapid succession. And the story races from one moment of zany fun to the next.

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.

Y a-t-il un pilote dans l'avion ?
  • a.k.a. Y a-t-il un pilote dans l'avion 1

Les personnages et les événements de ce film sont fictifs - heureusement ! Robert Hays joue le rôle d’un ancien pilote de chasse obligé de prendre les commandes d’un avion de ligne quand l’équipage succombe à une intoxication alimentaire. Julie Hagerty est sa petite amie/hôtesse de l’air/co-pilote, entourée d’autres acteurs comme Robert Stack, Lloyd Bridges, Peter Graves, Leslie Nielsen, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar… et d’autres encore. Leurs gags parodient tous les films-catastrophe et l’histoire rebondit sans cesse en un tourbillon étourdissant.

L'aereo più pazzo del mondo
  • a.k.a. L'aereo più pazzo del mondo

Ted è un tassista abbandonato dalla fidanzata, hostess sugli aerei di linea. Per riconquistarla si imbarca sul volo in cui lei è in servizio, ma le sorprese non mancano. Il pranzo servito a bordo è infatti avariato, e tra gli intossicati ci sono i piloti. Sollecitato dalla ragazza Ted, pur non avendo mai guidato un aereo, riesce comunque ad atterrare salvando tutti.
