LAX: The Longest Day

On his way home from a conference in Sacramento with a quick jaunt to Las Vegas, Roger begins to suspect his plane might be in trouble when a minor electrical surge sets off the cabin call lights. Using his status as LAX tower supervisor and experience as a flight engineer, he attempts to gain control of the situation, only to discover the plane is experiencing a massive power failure as the control instruments slowly start to fail. In the LAX control tower Harley attempts to guide the distressed plane in for a safe landing while Tony keeps Roger's wife comforted in the terminal.

Episode Goofs
When Roger is checking the diagnostics in the cockpit, the monitor shows the 3-way diagram of a Boeing 727. But in the landing shot near the end of the episode, it shows a Boeing 737.

The distance between Los Angeles and Las Vegas is about 250 miles, which is less than an hour flight. The plane could have landed back in Las Vegas with McCarran Intl. Airport's help, instead of doing a risky smog landing at a busy LAX, or they could have tried the four other large airports around Los Angeles; John Wayne, Burbank, Long Beach and Ontario.

On the Boeing 727, the FE (Flight Engineer) panel is on the right, not the left side of the cockpit. Also, even on the 727-232ADV, there is no computer monitor on the FE panel or on the main instrument panel, let alone a touch screen. It is all analog gauges, switches and knobs.
