Dick Steele, Agent WD-40 is assigned by his Director, to stop the evil General Rancor from destroying the world. WD-40 believed Rancor was dead and he teams up with the hot K.G.B. Agent Veronique Ukrinsky to find Rancor and save the world.
Years have passed since Ted Striker heroically saved many lives by avoiding a plane crash. Working as a test pilot for a new Lunar Shuttle, he gets innocently sent into a mental ward after a crash of the badly constructed, computer-navigated spaceship. When he hears that the exactly same type of shuttle is scheduled for a moon flight soon, he breaks out to hinder the launch. Aboard, Ted finds his ex-ex Elaine Dickinson working as stewardess again and her fiancé Simon, a member of the committee that wants the Mayflower I to be launched. In flight, the ship's computer ROK 9000 takes control, killing the crew. Ted and Elaine manage to switch it off, and now it is up to Ted again to save the passengers' lives - if there only wouldn't be these flashbacks to the war and these people who know Ted and have no faith in his abilities at all.

Following the air traffic controller asking to get Steve McCroskey (Lloyd Bridges), there is a scene that was cut from the theatrical version which shows McCroskey in a mental institution. It opens a nurse getting a phone call from the space center asking for McCroskey. Another nurse worries that the call might disturb him, to which the first nurse replies "It's okay. He just thinks he's Lloyd Bridges." As she walks up to his bed, McCroskey is under the sheets with a snorkel poking out (A reference to Bridges' popular series Sea Hunt (1958)). After she gives him the phone, McCroskey takes the call, and then gets out of bed saying "Looks like I picked the wrong week to go senile!" (A reference to his repeated lines from the first film: "Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit smoking/drinking/sniffing glue...") Though cut from the theatrical version, the scene is often inserted in television viewings to fill time. See more »
In the opening in the airport, when Scraps the dog is first shot he's on a leash. When they cut back, there's no longer a leash. See more »
[after hearing Striker on the radio]
A man - now that's more like it.
[to the radio]
Come in Mayflower 1, give me your name and position.
My name's Striker and I'm sitting down and facing front. Why would you want to know that?

I find it hard to understand how someone can take a classic like 'Airplane!' and follow it up with this crap. Basically a rehash of the first genius film, 'Airplane II' recycles the same old jokes over and the few new ones that are there fall flat on their face. If you don't want to taint your enjoyment of Airplane! then skip this turkey.
