The Flight that Disappeared is a 1961 science fiction film.[1]

Plot[edit]

Flight 60 leaves on a trip to Washington DC. Three scientists on board have been called to DC for classified meeting concerning a new bomb design and rocket to deliver it. Mid-flight the plane mysteriously begins to climb, to over 10 miles high, the engines stop and passengers pass out due to lack of oxygen. The three scientists find themselves in a limbo state, watches stopped and no heartbeats, then taken from the plane for judgement from those of the future. They find themselves in a moment between time explaining the stopped watches and lack of heart beats. They are shown, in brief, a future where their bomb has been used and destroyed all life on the planet, having destroyed the atmosphere. They are judged guilty and sentenced to live in the moment with no time for the rest of eternity. Where the future and past meet. Returned to the present on a technicality, the passengers have no memory of any of the actions on board before passing out, with the exception of the rocket engineer. When the plane lands at Washington, they discover they are 24 hours late, thus proving the fantastic story of the trial and judgement. The nuclear bomb designer decides to dispose of his notebook containing the formulas and designs for the B Type Bomb.
