Did anybody catch the Grounded documentary on the History Channel? The show was originally aired several weeks ago on the anniversary of 9/11, but I did not watch it until last night when I found it on my DVR. It was a very interesting documentary with some great video and chilling audio between ATC and aircraft.

I think this was a History Channel original. The documentary was called Grounded On 9/11 and it did not have any of the references that you mentioned in it. It even mentioned that Canada closed their airspace for a while on that day, which I never knew. One of the videos that stands out is of a Korean Air Cargo 744 that landed at Whitehorse in the Yukon.

I bought 'Clear the Skies' expecting it to be about getting all the planes out of the air on 9/11 and all the diversions to Canada that took place. It wasn't about that at all, but was a fascinating account of the day's events, mostly from an air defense point of view, and safeguarding US government leaders.
