Plot

Commercial pilot Brodie Torrance, a former RAF pilot, flies Trailblazer Airlines Flight 119 from Singapore to Honolulu via Tokyo. After his plane suffers damage from a storm in the South China Sea, he is forced to land his plane in what turns out to be Jolo island in the Philippines with the loss of a stewardess and an RCMP officer, who is accompanying fugitive homicide suspect Louis Gaspare.

In New York City, the board of Trailblazer calls their crisis manager, Scarsdale. He dispatches a private military outfit to rescue the passengers, as the authorities are unwilling to send troops into the rebel-controlled island. Torrance goes off into the jungle to seek help, accompanied by Gaspare. At an abandoned warehouse, Brodie phones his superiors and daughter to tell their location, but is attacked by a rebel whom he subdues. They encounter a site used by the rebels to make ransom videos and race back to the plane, but are beaten to it by rebel leader Datu Junmar, who kills a Korean couple who try to escape and takes the surviving passengers and crew hostage, intending to secure large ransoms from their families.

After the group leaves, Brodie and Gaspare overpower remaining rebels and force them to reveal the location of their lair. Before leaving, Brodie leaves a note for rescue teams telling them what happened. At the rebel hideout, Brodie and Gaspare kill the hostages' guards and sneak them onto a bus. Brodie decides to stay behind to distract the rebels. As he is about to be executed, the rescue team arrives, inflicting heavy casualties on Junmar's men.

Back at the plane, Brodie and his copilot Samuel Dele manage to make the plane operational again and gather the hostages inside for takeoff as Scarsdale's group and Gaspare fight off Junmar's men. Gaspare chooses to stay behind to distract Junmar's forces and allow Scarsdale's team to board the plane, preventing an attempt by Junmar to blow up the plane with an RPG and later fleeing into the jungle with a bag of money brought by the mercenaries to pay for the hostages.

The plane is too damaged and too low on fuel to make a long journey, but Brodie manages to land the plane at the neighboring island of Siasi, where they are finally rescued by government forces and where Brodie receives praise from the passengers and crew.
