Glenn Ford stars as Col. Pete Moore, the commander of a radar testing group. After experiencing strange difficulties with the testing procedure, a group of aircraft sent to investigate disappear mysteriously. Moore, anxious to discover what has happened to his men, runs afoul of other government agencies investigating the possibility of UFO activity in the area. DISAPPEARANCE OF FLIGHT 412 was originally broadcast on NBC in 1974, during a period of increased production of TV movies. It stands out, however, for its taut editing and effort by director Jud Taylor (a television veteran and former president of the DGA) to maintain a photographic realism in a science fiction tinged drama.
