Film-catastrophe. An ordinary flight to an African country did not look too unusual. But the place, where the aircraft had landed, was earthquaked and the crew took all passengers, injured, children and women aboard. When the aircraft was in the air it became clear that it got unpressurized. The heroes patched the hole at an extremely low temperature and the breaking aircraft landed in the native airport.
