Plot

A DC-8 airliner on a regular flight departs for the Western United States when a bomb threat is made to the airline company that the plane belongs to. It is later revealed that the bomb is a pressure sensitive one and will set off if the plane goes below regular cruising altitudes. Several attempts to find the bomb on board the flight, including tearing open several areas in the cabin and cockpit, fail to no avail. Faced with a fuel shortage, the captain then comes up with the idea to land at an airport that is at a high altitude. Towards the end the bomb is discovered where it was least expected: The pilot's bag.

FAA concerns

In 1971 the US Federal Aviation Administration urged TV stations not to air the film on the basis that the film may inspire other emotionally unstable individuals to commit the same or similar acts as the villain in the film.
