I am looking for a movie where an airplane accidentally flies into space and the passengers are saved by a space-shuttle. Specifically by a space tunnel that connects the plane and space shuttle.
It was a live-action movie. I have seen in 1990s, but it might easily be an older movie. (1980s) It was American.
The plane has some sort of failure, where it keeps climbing, Until it reaches orbit, with air running out due to breathing, but no other problem. They send a space shuttle to save them and then try various ways to get the passengers from the plane into the shuttle. One of the attempts is a tunnel, which however breaks apart. I thinks it was a B-class movie, not of high quality. I have been unable to Google it using this information provided.
Its also not listed in Wikipedia list of films related to plane disaster.
