Student nurses join some doctors to work in a medical station a few hours flying-time from the Mexican town of Catamaco. One of their planes goes down due to an engine malfunction and crashes in the rain forest. This is the story of the attempts to save the lives of the passengers (both nurses and doctors).

I've gotta vote 10, even without seeing the movie yet! I just finished nursing school, and guess who was one of my instructors? Yup: Jill Houston from the movie (that was her maiden name)! She's still an awesome nurse- I got to work one-on-one with her for 5 weeks and she taught me more than an entire year of classes could have! She told me her story and I had to do a search to find the movie since she's a bit modest. She told me about how all they really had was in packs around their waist- like bandage scissors, etc. I want to go into flight nursing but stuff like that has me a bit frightened, I guess that's something I'll have to get over.

pretty good,jennifer lopez"s second movie
first of all i've saw this movie yesterday under the name : LOST IN THE WILD which runs 2 minutes longer than Nurses on the Line: The Crash of Flight 7.this movie has potential because has good shots(was filmed in Mexico),very good cast,good soundtrack,interesting scenery but it had been more entertaining if it was an intersection between the drug dealer and the nurses and if it was a love story between the adventure.that's are my only discontent.robert loggia and jennifer lopez were awesome and the other cast too.i've read in other commentaries about this movie that jennifer lopez has a minor role but this is not true.if think that her real fans will enjoy her in this movie.so all in all it is a pretty good movie that could have been a much better movie even a classic one if the story of the movie had been more intriguing

truly, a very good movie
Brilliant! I watched this movie 3 days ago on channel 7 in Australia. When it started, looked silly. But got so much better! A true story aswell! Lindsay Wagner was absolutely brilliant as well as her co-star Robert Loggia. While heading towards a makeshift medical outpost deep into the Mexican jungle, one of three planes crashes, stranding a group of doctors and student nurses, some of whom are critically injured. This taut adventure follows the attempts of the others to locate the downed plane and save the lives of the survivors. Once the search party finds the injured medics, their next challenge is to get them to a proper medical facility. One in particular could die any moment. The searchers could have treated them on the spot had not local natives appeared and looted the downed plane of its drugs. A nearby landing strip promises a chance to get the injured passengers to safety, but unfortunately that would precipitate a night flight and recent anti-drug operations laws strictly prohibit flying after dark. One brave doctor volunteers to traverse the jungle to a nearby town in hopes of convincing authorities to make an exception. Meanwhile the rest of the entourage must somehow make it safely to the airstrip by daylight. But don't make it, the plane comes over and doesn't see them. Then the people of far off cities come with torches, car lights, fires the plane tries to land the first time, can't, the airstrip was to short. Then the second time the pilots come in as slow as they can then stops... 3 metres before the doctors and the pilots would be killed.
