Review: Brilliant! I watched this movie 3 days ago on channel 7 in Australia. When it started, looked silly. But got so much better! A true story aswell! Lindsay Wagner was absolutely brilliant as well as her co-star Robert Loggia. While heading towards a makeshift medical outpost deep into the Mexican jungle, one of three planes crashes, stranding a group of doctors and student nurses, some of whom are critically injured. This taut adventure follows the attempts of the others to locate the downed plane and save the lives of the survivors. Once the search party finds the injured medics, their next challenge is to get them to a proper medical facility. One in particular could die any moment. The searchers could have treated them on the spot had not local natives appeared and looted the downed plane of its drugs. A nearby landing strip promises a chance to get the injured passengers to safety, but unfortunately that would precipitate a night flight and recent anti-drug operations laws strictly prohibit flying after dark. One brave doctor volunteers to traverse the jungle to a nearby town in hopes of convincing authorities to make an exception. Meanwhile the rest of the entourage must somehow make it safely to the airstrip by daylight. But don’t make it, the plane comes over and doesn’t see them. Then the people of far off cities come with torches, car lights, fires the plane tries to land the first time, can’t, the airstrip was to short. Then the second time the pilots come in as slow as they can then stops… 3 metres before the doctors and the pilots would be killed.
