If you can find this at a decent price - I got my set for just over £5 - snap it up for nostalgia value and sheer entertainment.

The series starts off very stylishly with the soapy, melodramatic Airport (1970), and declines in quality over time. My favourite things about the original are Alfred Newman's classy score, the schmaltzy gimmicks (such as the overused split screen) and the excellent cast.

Airport '75 is surprisingly well made, with spectacular photography and generally high production values. At the same time it is terribly cheesy and replete with bad dialogue, making this the prime target for the later Airplane! spoof. But it's fun and occasionally suspenseful. I enjoyed cameos from the likes of Hollywood old-timers Myrna Loy and Gloria Swanson.

Airport '77 was always my favourite as a kid. The production values are poorer here (the jumbo jet bobbing its head out of the Atlantic waters looks like a cardboard cut-out), and there are patches of dullness, but again it's generally entertaining.

The Concorde: Airport '79 is BY FAR the worst in the series, and it is no surprise it was laughed out of the theatres in previews. The script is painfully bad, and the plot is outright ridiculous. The height of silliness is when pilot George Kennedy diverts a missile by opening the cockpit window of a concorde and firing a flare gun *while flying upside down.* You can't make this stuff up. Well, evidently someone did, and probably even got paid for it. I felt I should have been paid to *watch* it.

Nevertheless, their God-awfulness is a major reason for watching these movies. I enjoyed the set, and if you grew up with the series, you undoubtedly will too.

Although The Poseidon Adventure gets all the credit, Airport is the film that really kicked off the 70s disaster craze. Unlike its three follow-ups, this adaptation of Arthur Hailey's doorstop novel really is as much about the snowbound airport as it is the imperilled plane, one of many plots the movie juggles. Hailey had built his novel around a 1956 Canadian TV movie he wrote called Flight Into Danger, but much of it plays like a Peyton Place-esquire soap opera: will embattled airport manager Burt Lancaster stay married to Dana Wynter or to his job - or will he go off into the sunrise with that nice airline rep Jean Seberg? Will pilot Dean Martin leave his wife now he's got stewardess Jacqueline Bisset up the duff? Will Helen Hayes' scene-stealing geriatric stowaway get caught? Will George Kennedy clear the blocked runway in time to avoid tragedy? Will Van Heflin's mentally troubled demolitions expert set off the bomb in his briefcase? Would there be a movie if he didn't?

Shot like an epic to emphasise the size and scale of everything (it even opens with an overture of sound effects of a busy airport terminal before bursting into Alfred Newman's urgent rumba-led score) it's a big, glossy well crafted entertainment that still holds up surprisingly well, especially in widescreen where the occasional split-screen effects come into their own (not to mention a great gag with a priest and an annoying passenger during the crash landing that's usually lost in the TV panning-and-scanning). It's the least sensational of the series but still the most effective, and there's no shortage of familiar faces in the passenger seats, from Lloyd Nolan, Maureen Stapleton, Jesse Royce Landis, Whit Bissell and the original "Jimmy Bond 007" of the CIA, Barry Nelson.

This is a great little boxset which contains all 4 of the Airport Disaster movies,

"Airport"
"Airport 75"
"Airport 77"
"Airport 79 The Concorde"

The one actor appearing in all four films is George Kennedy in role of Joe Patroni. Patroni's character evolves over the series and he goes from a chief mechanic in Airport, a Vice President of Operations in Airport 1975, a consultant in Airport '77, and an experienced pilot in The Concorde...Airport '79.

Individually these films are ok but well worth buying as a boxset

A good dvd boxset but no additional extra's shame but good films, i think Aiport 75 is the best. A lone pilot has a heart attack and crashes into Columbia 409 bound for Salt Lake City. Charlton Heston plays Al Murdock the only person to save the stricken airline. Airport 77 is a good film, good story plenty of suspence, but OTT on the crash in the ocean which in reallity a plane at that speed would break up as it hits the ocean, overall good movie. Airport 80 The Concorde is crap, story, acting is very poor and the idea of a missille attack on a concorde in which flies upside down could not happen it would break up at that speed. only good thing about this film is the return of George Kennedy as Joe Patroni. overall good boxset but could have added some extra's

Here's where you have to start -Airport a crazed sad Bomber on a 737,Airport 75 a mid air collision with a light aircraft and a 747 and the race to land it -with the stewardess at the controls. Aipotrt77 a 747 is hijacked and crashes in the Bermuda Triangle-underwater rescue is needed. Airport 79 he Concorde terrorists try to destroy the Concorde in this supersonic drama. Backed with the likes of the late Karen black ,Jack Lemmon ,Brenda Vaccaro ,Linda Blair ,Charlton Heston and George Kennedy to name just a few this is a very entertaning collection of the Airport Disaster classics of the 70s Excitement for adults and children.
