Air Force One - Auto Pilot?
Air Force One (1997, Harrison Ford, Gary Oldman)
Kinda half way through the movie, Harrison Ford is shown being clever by having the other planes fire
on the plane, thereby engaging the automatic pilot, so the bad guys have no control of the plane. At the
end, when the Migs come after them, Harrison Ford is shown again as being clever by dodging the
missiles they fire at him. Apparently that automatic system got lost somewhere... [Harrison Ford turns
it off before he takes control]

Actually, the first time he is 'being clever', the autopilot is disengaged, causing the plane to tip to one side for him to escape the whole gun to the back of the head situation. When he is flying the plane at the end, he already has control; so the Autopilot hasn't gone anywhere!

Don't the submission rules say that if you can think of a reasonable explanation why it happened, then it's not a slip-up? 'Cause you posted a reasonable explanation - Harrison Ford turned the autopilot off. I don't think it's the *right* explanation, but it's reasonable. So, if you could explain why it happened, why did you post it as a slip-up!?!

If you remember earlier in the movie. William H. Macy says "We've lost Countermeasures" Countermeasures are the planes defenses and we are to assume that countermeasures also means when the plan dives out of the way. So I go that it was all gone when he said that. Autopilot doesn't make the plane dive out of the way. Countermeasures does. At least that is my opinion.
