Barry Jenner: Ben Zimmerman
[after being denied landing clearance in Beirut]
Ben Zimmerman : They turned off their VOR. And the runway lights.
Phil Maresca : We have mountain elevation just beyond the airport.
Captain Testrake : And the sea on the left. We have six minutes of fuel left and they turn the lights off. Where do they expect us to land, downtown Beirut?
Captain Testrake : Okay, we'll make one more approach.
Phil Maresca : We'll put her down in the water if we have to.
Captain Testrake : No, we're going to go for the runway. Uli, tell him we may have to crash land.
Purser Uli Derickson : [referring to Castro] He says, good, that will keep him from having to blow up the plane.
