As far as disaster movies of the 70's this one edges out the original Airport as the best of the bunch. Believable characters and just the right balance of story and action. The best compliment I can give it is at 2hrs 44 minutes it left me wanting more...That's where this blu-ray comes in! No only do you get crystal clear picture and sound that take me back to the cinema when I was a kid, but there are about 45 minutes of extended/deleted scenes. It's the same thrill I got when I saw it for the first time. If you are a fan of the 70's disaster genre (like me) don't be afraid to part with your 2 DVD special Edition. All the extras you'll need are here. Great bang for the buck, and a nice trip back to the 70's at it's catastrophic finest!
