Actor Robert Hays probably is best known to fans for his performance as beleaguered commercial pilot Ted Striker in the 1980 screwball movie comedy "Airplane!," so there's inspired logic in having him act as host for this new half-hour docuseries, which premieres tonight with two back-to-back episodes. Each installment recounts incredible but true moments in flight travel, whether aboard the plane in flight or in the long lines in the airline terminal.
