This was on UK tv today, caught the end of it. At first i thought it was one of the horrendously awful US disaster movies, but the credits said it was based on a true sory.
Any threads out there that i can get more info?

This thread reminded me to give you guys the heads up to see it, I've known since Saturday and each day forgot to do it.
I taped it, its a good film and they did stick somewhat closer to the facts - They had an extra pilot on the F/D - the real plane was a DC-10 and had an engineer so they put another guy up there on the 767. There was only one shot of a different A/C type (unlike some damn films) and at least the aircraft footage was all NZ.
