Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Fugitive in the Sky closely resembles such earlier aviation programmers as 13 Hours by Air and Absolute Quiet. Once again, a plane-load of diverse passengers is hijacked by a fugitive criminal, who this time forces the plane to land during a dust storm. This incident opens a whole new can of worms concerning a still-unsolved murder case, which seemingly involves everyone on the plane. The carefully disguised killer is revealed in a devilishly clever (and cinematically inventive) manner, though the identity of this worthy is inadvertently tipped off in the opening credits. This is the sort of "good, little picture" which, once seen in childhood, is never forgotten.
