With your help, we've been able to make the necessary upgrades to our server to keep the site running more smoothly than ever!

The meager ad revenue generated by this site isn't sufficient to cover the annual cost of running the server, and we who manage it have never made money from it.

This article is about the 1991 movie. Do not confuse with Final Approach (2007 TV Movie).

Final Approach movie poster.

Movie (1991)
French title : L'approche finale

James Sikking (Col. Jason Halsey)
Hector Elizondo (Dr. Dio Gottlieb)
Madolyn Smith (Casey Halsey, Jason's wife)
Cameo Kneuer (Brooke Halsey, the first wife of Jason)

A test pilot awakens with amnesia and is subsequently subjected to a series of trying psychiatric procedures by a very eager therapist. He eventually recalls portions of a crash involving a top secret bomber and begins to suspect that he may actually be in enemy hands. Really ? So what about his wife and youth ?
