Glide Path/Flight Plan/Docking

Consider the two cases of landing a space ship: 1) Airport-control (control tower, etc). 2) Independent pilot. Them first of these is characterised by the film "Airport" during final approach, as well as the film "Alien IV: Resurrection" during then inital approach. The second is characterised by "Star Wars IV: A New Hope" when the Millenium Falcon takes off from Moss Eisley. The two contrasting (extreme) cases indicate the following: 1) A civilisation. A managed port facility. Rules, regulations. 2) Emergencies, breaking the rules, an un-tamed region or situation.
