The pilot, co-pilot and many passengers suffer food poisoning from tainted halibut and someone must be found who can fly the plane. Low-budget programmer encumbered by the extensive use of stock footage, which would likely have been forgotten had it not been so excellently spoofed by Airplane! (1980).
