Flight

Saw this the other night. A bit predictable in some parts but the acting was terrific.

It looks good - I'll probably wait till it comes out on DVD though.

Yeah I swear between the smoking drugs and alcohol, I'm surprised that guy even could get that plane off the runway lol.

I thought it was a great movie. One of my colleagues however, thinks it makes a mockery of our profession. I think he's crazy though.

Did anyone see the report of the pilot that actually was under the influence when he was about ready to fly??

The flight sequence was highly problematic from a flight dynamics standpoint. I realize it is a movie and they need to take artistic license. The movie was not really about the the crash but rather dealing with addiction. And the consequences.

The root cause of the crash was taken from the crash of an Alaskan MD 80 off the coast of California where an improperly lube jack screw assembly caused a jammed horizontal stabilizer in a full nose-up or nose down position I forget. Anyhow when the plane went down in the pacific it was in inverted flight but tail first I believe.

Nonetheless a very good movie with great acting. Denzel got the not for best actor nomination. Reminds me of his performance in A Man on Fire - a very good movie in my humble opinion.

Yup. Scary ****. Off the coast of California. I believe they were try to make LAX under a declared emergency. Pilots from other flights in the area witnessed it.
