The film Flight Crew is the second Russian film that will be released in IMAX format. The film tells the story of a talented young pilot Alexey Gushchin (Danila Kozlovsky). He renounces authority of others and acts in accordance with a personal code of honour. For failure to carry out an absurd order, he is prevented from flying military aircraft and he gets a chance to fly civil aircraft by miracle. Gushchin starts his flying career from the beginning. His supervisor - the aircraft crew commander- is rugged and principled Leonid Zinchenko (Vladimir Mashkov). His colleague - the second pilot- is inaccessible beauty Alexandra (Agne Grudite). Their relationships are not easy. But hanging between life and death, when the ground is slipping under feet, fire and ashes are all around, and the only way to escape is in the sky, Gushchin does his best. Only together the crew will be able to perform a feat and save hundreds of lives.
