It's great to revisit the media we were immersed in as young kids because it illuminates how many bogus attitudes get internalised just for being norms at the time, as well as how far we've come.

This film leaves a fair bit to be desired - many of the men are shouty and conversely many of the women portrayed as semi helpless. Even when they're conquering their fears they look a bit wobbly compared to the steely demeanour of the men.

Yet hostie Nancy saves the day in the cockpit, plausibly figuring out how to operate the 747 with some moral support from Helen.

For the era, it could be worse.
