Robert Aldrich's tense, 1965 drama about a plane crash in the Sahara is a unique psychological study of men in desperate circumstances. In this somewhat revisionist view of classic heroism, every character within the mixed lot is stretched to his limit, and individual efforts to brave the elements and hostile nomads are duly punished. What is left is collective will and ingenuity. One could call this an allegory for transcending Cold War madness, perhaps, but Aldrich (Kiss Me Deadly) makes this such a gritty, immediate experience that you can feel the desert sand in your teeth. Superb performances by James Stewart, Richard Attenborough, Hardy Kruger, Peter Finch, and the rest. --Tom Keogh

My Project 365 #40: "Dad's Flight Log"




My Project 365 #40:





Today is February 9th (a significant date in aviation history). The Boeing 727 made it's first flight in 1963 and the Boeing 747 made hers on this date in 1969. As that was happening my dad was aboard a Continental Airlines 707 training as a Director of Passenger Service.

A DPS was a member of management on board Continental flights. They could get passengers a hotel room, a rental car, call ahead to help make a tight connection or rewrite a ticket for a Continental flight and steal them away from another airline.

This position is long gone but because my dad had this job (and others) with Continental, I've been in love with aviation from the time I saw my first airplane.

Today's photo is from my dad's flight log of 2.9.1969. I wasn't here yet, but when he tells me stories about these flights and his years with Continental, it's like was there.

Thanks, Dad!

My flight to Arizona was wonderful. The first part from Norfolk to Atlanta was delayed and then we had to sit on the plane to allow for a deceased soldier and his chaperon to get off of the plane first and my layover in Atlanta wasn't that long to begin with. So, I had to haul ass from my gate to the boarding gate, which luckily was in the same terminal. So I got off of one plane and then jumped right on another without too much time to spare. And I did it. All high and stuff. Proving that I can do it. If only to myself.

James Stewart stars as the captain of a plane that has crashed in the desert and must be fixed on the double before all crew members die.
