"Mercy Mission: The Rescue of Flight 771"

Made for TV movie 1993.

Based on a true story of a pilot who flew a crop duster all the way to Australia but got off course and was rescued by Gordon Vette [played by Robert Loggia], the pilot of a passenger plane.

If you haven't seen it, I can highly recommend it.
Scott is brilliant in it, naturally. But beyond that it is a very moving story, splendidly told. Has me in tears every time I watch it.

Little point of interest - the real life 'Jay' and 'Gordon' have cameo roles as passengers looking out of the airport window at the end!
