In Flight Denzel Washington plays Whip Whitaker, an Air Force veteran, now airline pilot who just so happens to have an addiction to alcohol and cocaine. One ordinary day Whip catches a a flight where something goes wrong. If it weren't for his advanced piloting skills, everyone on board the plane would probably be dead, but he saves almost everyone by turning the plane upside down and right-side-up again, killing only 6 people. Because of Whip's heavy drinking during the flight before the catastrophic malfunction, he automatically stops drinking all together.
