Movie Idea!

How's this for a thought :).....

Set in the near future, time travel is discovered but it's highly restricted, you know the usual. ..

But, one of the partners of the time travel project is the NTSB, a highly trained taskforce is setup to send both trained engineers and law enforcement onto a plane depending on the scenario.

For example, after a crash the NTSB claims pilot fault and the problem could have been avoided, depending on black box and statistics teams can be sent in to rescue the plane providing mission is deemed safe, the drama aspect comes from rouge missions to save loved ones even though clearance for the mission was grounded as it's deemed too dangerous..

Once onboard the plane after time travel the experts then fight to regain control or avoid it completely eg not allowing the captain to fly too high or the plain explodes not to mention will the captain let these people take control!

Visit real or made up, air crash investigation meets sci fi :slight_smile:

What was that Kris Kristofferson movie where people from the future used to enter imminent plane crashes and swap the live people out for cadavers to take back to the future?

lol, but no the idea was to rescue them lol

Yeah, John Varley story ("Air Raid") /novel ("Millenium"), made into movie with KK: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Millennium_(novel)
The short story was pretty good.

They are rescued, just to a different timeline.

@westfw - yes that's the one. Never read the book but remember the film as being quite good. Would be nice to watch it again to see if it has stood the test of time.

The past is a fixed point. You can't change it let a lone travel back in time. You can travel forward in time theoretically.

Or you can go to an alternate universe jump in at a specific time but then you'll be altering an alternate universe and not yours.

You can travel forward in time theoretically.

Think we do that constantly at an almost fixed speed......

Yup, more noticeable when we go at the speed of light.
