Air Collision is an American direct video action film directed by Liz Adams, starring Reginald VelJohnson, Jordan Ladd, and Gerald Webb. Air Collision was released from The Asylum on March 27, 2012.
After a major electromagnetic storm disrupted communications around the world, a new satellite-based airborne collision avoidance system (ACAT) air traffic control system was attacked, and debris hit the earth. The malfunctioning satellite puts all air traffic on the east coast of the United States at risk, and the area is operating in a “pilot project.”
Therefore, the two aircraft are heading towards the collision course. One is a commercial airliner carrying hundreds of passengers, and the other is Air Force One carrying President Phillips (Andy Clemens), the President of the United States and his family. ACAT began to issue wrong orders, putting both aircraft in serious danger.
In a severe electrical storm, the satellite began to fail, and debris hit densely populated areas of the United States. Dr. Antonia “Toni” Pierce (Erin Coker) encountered some debris and contacted Bob Abbot (Reginald VelJohnson), the Cleveland FAA air traffic controller. Abbot tried to prevent an imminent disaster and covered all high-level instructions to keep the plane flying. He wanted to ground all traffic.
Both commercial aircraft and Air Force One were struck by lightning, which partially paralyzed the aircraft. The damaged satellite signal caused the ACAT to cause severe damage to the escorted F-16 fighter. The McDonnell Douglas MD-80 airliner also lost two engines, but restarted before the impact. The rogue Sidewinder missiles of Air Force One also hit the converging passenger planes, and the collision of the two planes was clear at a glance. The passenger plane crashed in Cleveland.
The rescue work of the Lockheed Air Force C-130 Hercules ultimately failed to make the passengers of Air Force One safe. The electric pulse that affected the President’s aircraft killed the flight crew. The only option left was the President’s daughter (Stephanie Hullar). Lar) tried to disable the ACAT system. When the ACAT was finally overthrown, the president took control of Air Force One and brought it to the landing field in Detroit.
The main photography took place in Santa Clarita, California. Featured shots of Air Force One. In fact, the VC-25A is a Boeing 747-200B, not the 747-400 shown in the movie.
