The persons and events in this film are fictitious-fortunately! A masterpiece of off-the-wall comedy, AIRPLANE! Features ROBERT HAYS [from television's "Angie"] as an ex-fighterpilot 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 hijinks 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.
