Over the top movies are sometimes ok. I'll probably see it.
It just doesn't seem to be very realistic in both the fact a drunk could fly a plane better than someone sober and the fact I don't think a passenger jet could fly upside down that way.

If you see it post a review.

If I only went to movies that were realistic I would probably have a long wait between visits.

"PBS Television aired a historical film of a test flight of a Boeing 707 doing a barrel roll, going inverted during the maneuver. Being momentarily inverted during a barrel roll is not technically flying upside down, however, it does support the notion that a commercial jet liner [the 707] was able to be upside down, even for an instant, and recover and land safely."

I remember pictures of this when it happened, since a barrel roll is (normally) a 1G manuver it should not be structurally a problem.

i'm curious about that one, too. i don't think a passenger jet could do that from an airframe point of view. as for the drunk in the cockpit, scary as it is, there are incredibly talented drunks out there who make the rest of the normal non-drunk population look like rank amateurs, in any field/demographic.

Was going to see it last weekend, but the reviews were pretty bad. Saw Argo instead, it was ok. Let us know how you like it if you decide to peep it.

wasnt he flying a dc9 in the movie? (727)

any movie that shows the best scenes on a teaser, usually ends up being 2 hours of charactor development and plot line boredom.
