Ray Wise: Phil Maresca


  • [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.
