Synopsis

On January 13, 1982, Washington, D.C., was hit with a snowstorm. Air Florida flight 90 to Tampa sat waiting for take-off for nearly an hour since it had last been de-iced. When the plane took off, the small layer of ice that coated the jet resulted in a harrowing crash and a story of survival against winter's wrath.
