(CBS, 9/17/1971, 120 mins). This TV carbon of Arthur Hailey’s “Airport” has crew and passengers stricken by food poisoning, forcing a washed up helicopter pilot on board to land the plane with the help of a stewardess. Previously it had been the basis for a drama “Flight Into Danger” on TV’s “Alcoa Hour” (1956) and then was made as “Zero Hour,” a 1957 theatrical film with Dana Andrews and Linda Darnell.
