Passenger 57 (1992)

Corrected entry: When the terrorists radio the small airport telling them to get the runway ready for them to land, the air traffic controller denies the copilots landing request. In an emergency situation, ATC is not allowed to deny a plane landing.


Correction: Not true. If a landing is possible, they must be expedited to the closest airport able to take them. If, for example, a runway is out of service, or the aerodrome is too small to handle a large airliner, they wouldn't be able to land there.
