The persons and events in this film are fictitious – fortunately! A mast erpiece of off-the-wall comedy, Airplane! features Robert Hays as an ex- fighter pilot forced to take over the controls of an airliner when the f light crew succumbs to food poisoning; Julie Hagerty as his girlfriend/s tewardess/co-pilot; and a cast of all-stars including Robert Stack, Lloy d Bridges, Peter Graves, Leslie Nielsen, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar… and more . Their hilarious high jinks spoof airplane disaster flicks, religious z ealots, television commercials, romantic love… the list whirls by in r apid succession. And the story races from one moment of zany fun to the next.
