Synopsis

Realistic dramatization of the fatal Air Florida crash in Washington, D.C. in January 1982, and its effects on the survivors, their families and those who helped in the rescue attempts. Among the notable sidelights: the crash itself is never shown and the rescues are staged from a heated pool in the middle of Los Angeles filled with chunks of styrofoam ice floes. Technical Emmy Award nominations were given for film sound editing and mixing.
