Synopsis

More super-spoofery as the Zucker-Abrahams-Zucker team deliver the in-flight sequel to end them all. Neurotic pilot Robert Hays is back behind the controls as a passenger-carrying moon shuttle sets a course for disaster. Luckily - or not - he's got plucky stewardess Julie Hagerty at his side and experts Lloyd Bridges and William Shatner to guide him down. Fasten your seatbelts for another side-splitting ride.

Review

Those Airport spoofers are at it again, with Robert Hays once more floundering at the controls, this time of a disaster-bound shuttle headed for the moon.

What's going on in the background is often funnier than what's happening up front, for example the poster with an aged boxer, advertising Rocky XXVIII. Lloyd Bridges, William Shatner, Peter Graves and Raymond Burr all enjoy themselves in wild support roles.

When a trial doctor is asked for his impression of Hays, he replies: 'I don't do impressions, I'm a psychiatrist.'
