Sechs der Personen an Bord, darunter Marquez, kommen ums Leben. Whitaker, der bewusstlos ins Krankenhaus eingeliefert worden ist, wird als Held gefeiert.
Als jedoch durch eine Blutprobe entdeckt wird, dass er vor dem Flug verschiedene Rauschmittel zu sich genommen hatte, droht dem Piloten eine lebenslange Haftstrafe.
Da Whitakers Co-Pilot und die Stewardess Margaret seinen berauschten Zustand vor dem Flug bemerkt hatten und die Wahrheit ans Licht bringen könnten, sucht er beide auf und kann sie dazu überreden, niemandem etwas davon zu erzählen.
Während dieser Zeit trinkt er dennoch exzessiv und ohne sich kontrollieren zu können weiter. Auch diese versucht ihn davon zu überzeugen, sich in eine Entzugstherapie zu begeben.
Es kommt schon bald zum Streit und Nicole verlässt ihn. Im Zuge der offiziellen Untersuchung werden in einem Mülleimer des Flugzeugwracks leere Wodkaflaschen gefunden.
Whitaker droht nun erneut aufzufliegen, da auf dem Flug keine alkoholischen Getränke ausgeschenkt wurden und lediglich die Crew Zugang zu den Spirituosen hatte.
Bei einer Anhörung über die Geschehnisse an Bord bietet sich wenig später aber die Gelegenheit, den Konsum des Wodkas der toten Stewardess Katerina Marquez in die Schuhe zu schieben und somit Whitakers Kopf endgültig aus der Schlinge zu ziehen.
Whitaker, der zuvor einige Zeit bei einem befreundeten Piloten gewohnt und während dieser Zeit keinen Alkohol getrunken hatte, erleidet in der Nacht vor der Anhörung in seinem Hotelzimmer einen Rückfall und betrinkt sich.
Am Morgen der Anhörung konsumiert er Kokain, um wieder fit zu werden. Als während der Anhörung der Alkoholkonsum an Bord des Fluges zur Sprache kommt, könnte Whitaker nun lügen, die tote Marquez beschuldigen und die Anhörung als Held verlassen.
Er erkennt im selben Moment jedoch, dass er sich selbst und andere bereits viel zu oft belogen hat, und fasst einen Entschluss: Er gesteht, am Unglückstag und die Tage zuvor getrunken zu haben und auch jetzt, bei der Befragung, betrunken zu sein, und dass er Alkoholiker sei.
Gedreht wurde an Orten in der Nähe von Atlanta, Georgia,  innerhalb von 45 Tagen. Ursache für den Absturz des Flugzeugs ist der Bruch einer Spindel des Höhenleitwerks.

Ngorongoro and the area around it served as the setting for the film Hatari! Fluent in German, English and French, he has worked in numerous European and American films, including the Oscar-winning Sundays and Cybele , and the original version of The Flight of the Phoenix Other films include the comedy-drama The Secret of Santa Vittoria , where he played a German officer during the Second World War trying to find hidden wine in a small Italian town; Stanley Kubrick 's Barry Lyndon with Ryan O'Neal ; Richard Attenborough 's A Bridge Too Far sharing a scene with Laurence Olivier , ; and The Wild Geese with Richard Burton Because of his stereotypical Teutonic look blond hair and blue eyes , Krüger often performed in roles portraying German soldiers.
Krüger mostly retired from acting in the late s and is today a writer. He published 16 books since , of which four have been translated into English.
Krüger had his first child Christiane Krüger born with his later-to-be wife Renate Densow — when he was only 17 years old. Krüger and Densow were married between and His second marriage was with the Italian painter Francesca Marazzi between and From this marriage, he has the children Malaika Krüger born and Hardy Krüger Jr.
Gemini's chief designer, Jim Chamberlin , also made detailed plans for cislunar and lunar landing missions in late He believed Gemini spacecraft could fly in lunar operations before Project Apollo, and cost less.
NASA's administration did not approve those plans. In , McDonnell-Douglas proposed a " Big Gemini " that could have been used to shuttle up to 12 astronauts to the planned space stations in the Apollo Applications Project AAP.
The only AAP project funded was Skylab — which used existing spacecraft and hardware — thereby eliminating the need for Big Gemini. NASA's public affairs office issued a statement in declaring "Jeh-mih-nee" the "official" pronunciation.
The Apollo program was conceived in early as a three-man spacecraft to follow Project Mercury. Jim Chamberlin , the head of engineering at the Space Task Group STG , was assigned in February to start working on a bridge program between Mercury and Apollo.
After Apollo was chartered to land men on the Moon by President John F. Kennedy on May 25, , it became evident to NASA officials that a follow-on to the Mercury program was required to develop certain spaceflight capabilities in support of Apollo.
Chamberlin designed the Gemini capsule, which carried a crew of two. He was previously the chief aerodynamicist on Avro Canada 's Avro Arrow fighter interceptor program.
Space Task Group's engineering division in charge of Gemini. Astronaut Gus Grissom was heavily involved in the development and design of the Gemini spacecraft.
What other Mercury astronauts dubbed "Gusmobile" was so designed around Grissom's 5'6" body that, when NASA discovered in that 14 of 16 astronauts would not fit in the spacecraft, the interior had to be redesigned.
The Gemini program was managed by the Manned Spacecraft Center , located in Houston, Texas , under direction of the Office of Manned Space Flight, NASA Headquarters, Washington, D.
George E. Mueller , Associate Administrator of NASA for Manned Space Flight, served as acting director of the Gemini program.
William C. Schneider, Deputy Director of Manned Space Flight for Mission Operations served as mission director on all Gemini flights beginning with Gemini 6A.
Guenter Wendt was a McDonnell engineer who supervised launch preparations for both the Mercury and Gemini programs and would go on to do the same when the Apollo program launched crews.
His team was responsible for completion of the complex pad close-out procedures just prior to spacecraft launch, and he was the last person the astronauts would see prior to closing the hatch.
The astronauts appreciated his taking absolute authority over, and responsibility for, the condition of the spacecraft and developed a good-humored rapport with him.
NASA selected McDonnell Aircraft , which had been the prime contractor for the Project Mercury capsule, in to build the Gemini capsule, the first of which was delivered in The Gemini crew capsule referred to as the Reentry Module was essentially an enlarged version of the Mercury capsule.
Unlike Mercury, the retrorockets , electrical power, propulsion systems, oxygen, and water were located in a detachable Adapter Module behind the Reentry Module.
A major design improvement in Gemini was to locate all internal spacecraft systems in modular components, which could be independently tested and replaced when necessary, without removing or disturbing other already tested components.
Many components in the capsule itself were reachable through their own small access doors. Unlike Mercury, Gemini used completely solid-state electronics, and its modular design made it easy to repair.
Gemini's emergency launch escape system did not use an escape tower powered by a solid-fuel rocket , but instead used aircraft-style ejection seats.
The tower was heavy and complicated, and NASA engineers reasoned that they could do away with it as the Titan II's hypergolic propellants would burn immediately on contact.
A Titan II booster explosion had a smaller blast effect and flame than on the cryogenically fueled Atlas and Saturn.
Ejection seats were sufficient to separate the astronauts from a malfunctioning launch vehicle. At higher altitudes, where the ejection seats could not be used, the astronauts would return to Earth inside the spacecraft, which would separate from the launch vehicle.
The main proponent of using ejection seats was Chamberlin, who had never liked the Mercury escape tower and wished to use a simpler alternative that would also reduce weight.
He reviewed several films of Atlas and Titan II ICBM failures, which he used to estimate the approximate size of a fireball produced by an exploding launch vehicle and from this he gauged that the Titan II would produce a much smaller explosion, thus the spacecraft could get away with ejection seats.
Maxime Faget , the designer of the Mercury LES, was on the other hand less-than-enthusiastic about this setup. Aside from the possibility of the ejection seats seriously injuring the astronauts, they would also only be usable for about 40 seconds after liftoff, by which point the booster would be attaining Mach 1 speed and ejection would no longer be possible.
He was also concerned about the astronauts being launched through the Titan's exhaust plume if they ejected in-flight and later added, "The best thing about Gemini was that they never had to make an escape.
The Gemini ejection system was never tested with the Gemini cabin pressurized with pure oxygen, as it was prior to launch. In January , the fatal Apollo 1 fire demonstrated that pressurizing a spacecraft with pure oxygen created an extremely dangerous fire hazard.
Stafford commented on the Gemini 6 launch abort in December , when he and command pilot Wally Schirra nearly ejected from the spacecraft:. So it turns out what we would have seen, had we had to do that, would have been two Roman candles going out, because we were 15 or 16 psi, pure oxygen, soaking in that for an hour and a half.
You remember the tragic fire we had at the Cape. Jesus, with that fire going off and that, it would have burned the suits.
Everything was soaked in oxygen. So thank God. That was another thing: NASA never tested it under the conditions that they would have had if they would have had to eject.
They did have some tests at China Lake where they had a simulated mock-up of Gemini capsule, but what they did is fill it full of nitrogen.
They didn't have it filled full of oxygen in the sled test they had. Gemini was the first astronaut-carrying spacecraft to include an onboard computer, the Gemini Guidance Computer , to facilitate management and control of mission maneuvers.
This computer, sometimes called the Gemini Spacecraft On-Board Computer OBC , was very similar to the Saturn Launch Vehicle Digital Computer.
The Gemini Guidance Computer weighed Its core memory had addresses , each containing a bit word composed of three bit "syllables".
All numeric data was bit two's-complement integers sometimes used as fixed-point numbers , either stored in the first two syllables of a word or in the accumulator.
