Writer John Gatins was inspired by a pilot who happened to be a fellow passenger on a flight. The pilot went on about his family life and issues, which gave Gatins pause and made him realize that whenever he is on a plane, he has to entrust himself to a stranger, who is only human, after all.

During the interrogation, the NTSB official refers to the "jackscrew that articulates the horizontal stabilizer, also known as the elevator". The horizontal stabilizer and elevator are not the same; the elevator is only a part of the stabilizer. See more »
I liked this a lot. Because I'm a Denzel fan and even if I don't like a movie he is in, I still like it. He is one of those actors who has that effect on me. Either I'm a fanboy or he really is a great actor. I suggest he is a great actor. This is a way cool movie and too close to reality for comfort. I mean, don't they screen pilots before they fly full of booze? It seems a bit thin on the ground at times, given the seriousness of the subject matter but upon reflection, the way it ends, suggests this is a super intelligent way of dealing with the subject matter. It is my second favorite movie ever about alcoholism, as one of its central themes. For those who don't care about the subject of too much booze too often, it is just another very good Denzel movie.
