Hank O'Hara is as good a pilot as they come. He knows how to handle an airliner in turbulent skies. How to settle the big bird down like a baby put to bed. But now he faces the unexpected. He's been Skyjacked.
Charlton Heston plays O'Hara, leading a top cast in a thriller from the era of big edge-of-your-seat disaster films like The Poseidon Adventure and Earthquake. John Guillermin (The Towering Inferno) directs, escalating the tension in a story about a deranged war vet who demands that a Minneapolis-bound flight make a slight detour—to Moscow. All that stands between the terrified passengers and doom is the steely resolve of Captain O'Hara. And moment after moment of nerve-shattering suspense.
