Description by OLDIES.com:

Blinding snow threatens to send a jetliner hurtling toward doom. But Captain Pete Douglass (David Janssen, "The Fugitive") has more than a snowstorm to battle when an armed madman turns the fuselage into a shooting gallery and his fellow passengers into clay pigeons.

Made in the era of Airport, The Towering Inferno and more epics of disaster, Mayday at 40,000 Feet! is piloted by three-time Emmy-winning director Robert Butler. Butler isn't the only award recipient aboard the project: Best Actor Oscar winners Ray Milland and Broderick Crawford are among those flying straight into peril.

Product Description:

MAYDAY AT 40,000 FEET is a regulation crisis-in-the-air TV movie distinguished by the accomplished direction of Robert (HILL STREET BLUES) Butler. David Janssen pilots a 747 chock full of guest stars, battling a snowstorm in order to find his way back to the airport. The plane develops engine trouble, threatening to dump its celebrity cargo in the icy drink. Adding to Janssen's growing list of problems is a maniac who goes on a shooting rampage in the first-class section. It's doubtful that anyone on November 12, 1976 stayed tuned to MAYDAY AT 40,000 FEET upon discovering that its competition on another network was the John Travolta vehicle THE BOY IN THE PLASTIC BUBBLE.
