A sunken plane, sharks …and 3 trapped passengers

Do you remember the movie “Airport ’77”?

In that one a big plane collides with an oil rig and sinks in (rather) shallow waters, leaving the passengers and crew trapped underwater.

I saw that movie as a child and it is still one of my favorite movies from the disaster genre.

Now we have another movie that has a pretty similar storyline:

A plane crashes and sinks to the bottom… leaving the surviving passengers trapped underwater.

Only in this case, it adds some sharks to it… so it is a low-budget fantasy/horror flick.

…with some scuba content!

Watch the video before you continue!

I had to cut the video rather short so, it would have a chance to stay on YouTube.

Still, it has been blocked in France and its overseas provinces/islands.

*EDIT* March 18:


(in case you can’t watch it on YouTube)


In case you wonder what happens to her:

Spoiler title
She struggles to get out of the down-sliding plane and passes out (drowns?) on her way up to the surface. Seemingly she is dead but wakes up coughing after a short time. #odd

Yeah, the roaring shark who ignores her is really… cringy.

But I like that he unmasks her as the tail hits her face.

Quite surprising that the fact that she loses her scuba mask doesn’t influence her at all… seemingly.

Also, she could have recovered it… in case it isn’t broken. But for some reason, she didn’t care about her mask.

The buddy breath scenes with the guy are well done.

In case you wonder why there is a dead scuba diver inside the plane:

He was one of two of a rescue team who found the plane but the fantasy sharks quickly had them as a scuba diver “snack”.

Some guys with scuba gear were on the plane… so the three could use that gear to escape the plane (wetsuits/masks).

All in all… a nice scene, and I am grateful for any new movie material with scuba scenes.

Wanna know the title of the TV show and the episode name?

The sister in law [sabotaged scuba gear]

Always wanted to see the whole movie since I heard about the scuba scene in it.

Never found the movie so far….but I found a nice clip that I wanna share with you. No edits were needed.

2 frogwomen and a frogman dive together.

But soon one of them realizes that evil forces have sabotaged her scuba gear (tank)!

Sorry for the bad picture quality but this was the best I found so far. And it’s a rare TV movie from the 90’s so……

Here is the video:

Still would love the see the movie to get the story!

Who are these people? Who wants to kill her….and WHY?

Why are all 3 of them diving alone each after a while?

Well, from this clip the guy would be my primary suspect as the other woman decides to help her.

But who knows without more info….

If you know a way to get the full movie, please let me know!

Quite a nice scene! Especially as her gear was sabotaged! Someone wanted her dead since her gauge isn’t showing that her tank is empty.

A little odd is the fact that she isn’t moving at all. If I would be out of air I would swim towards the rescuer who has spotted me but is still in some distance.

The movie title is already in the post title, but there are tons of movies with that title….so here is the link to the movie:

Female rebreather diver drowns after her air hose rips [Sanctum]

This one is one for my Hall of Fame!

I had that one my “to put on the blog”-list for ages, time that it finally appears here. I guess many know it already, but for those who don’t know it…. you will see a very intense scuba peril scene.

Two divers (one female, one male) exploring an underwater cave system. This is a dangerous task and they soon will realize that in a really bad way.


And here is the video (a longer version can be found below):

Watch the video before you continue!

Wow! That scene is really evil. The way she struggles to survive then panics and wants to have that scuba mask for herself, clawing on it…

…and then tries to get it back…while she weakens with every second she is out of air. Intense!

In most aspects this drowning is very realistic, the way she swallows water after she runs out of air….you won’t see a scene like that often (in a “normal” movie or TV series).

She has doomed herself after damaging her precious air hose in a tunnel before.

Some aspects of this scene are weird to me:

—> 1) Why are there no bubbles as she damages the air hose in the tunnel? She should realize the damage herself right away. Even it started with “only” a tear in the air hose…you should be able to see that. Or he should be able to realize that much earlier….

—> 2) Ok, buddy breathing with that equipment costs a lot of oxygen. Shouldn’t they try to move in a direction together? Anywhere to safety? Buddy breathing and staying on the same point….is completely useless since no help will come to them in time. They would run out of air and would both die.

—> 3) They dive around in caves without any backup systems? Ok, they had to leave the bailout tanks, because of a very narrow tunnel. But hey, shouldn’t there be a second regulator and other safety precautions? Seems pretty…. MAD ….diving in caves like that….in my opinion.

But ok, how many new scuba scenes like this show up? Well, very few in the last 20 years. And it’s my first scene where a woman with a rebreather drowns…UNIQUE!

And the struggling and drowning are done very well!

This scene is from that movie:
