"713" Requests Permission to Land (Russian: 713-й просит посадку, 713 prosit posadku) is a 1962 Soviet disaster film. It was directed by Grigori Nikulin and filmed at Lenfilm studio.
The premiere took place on April 3, 1962.
In an attempted political assassination, the crew of transatlantic flight 713 is poisoned by contaminated coffee, gradually rendering them unconscious, and leaving the plane to temporarily fly on autopilot. The passengers, however, remain oblivious. Soon the cockpit door is opened and the state of the crew is discovered and panic erupts. The aircraft begins losing altitude. A doctor, played by Vladimir Chestnokov, forces his way into the cockpit and regains control of the plane. Now he must guide the aircraft to a safe landing on Russian soil.
