Brings back all the dread of that day -

As for inaccuracies, the altitude drop looked like a bit of 3D CG of the 757, but the ramp shots suggest it was shot here in Toronto (WJ 737, Canjet 737 were both spottable, as well as the nose shot at the gate of what was probably an AC A32S)

Macabre and horrifying to watch.

L727

p.s. BlueSky - CG probably went into production before the livery change (?) good catch -

With all due respect, how often are they going to show that. Either its the one from the terrorist's perspective or some other biography of the event. I've seen it like 12 times already. Why do they insist on putting one of these shows on everyday?

Actually, personal opinion--picture gaffes aside, they're doing a good job depicting what might have happened onboard, and what happened with the phone calls from the airplanes to the family members.

God rest them....and God help the hijackers. May there be an especially hot place in hell for them.

I think this movie is about a touchy subject, so critiquing its every fault just doesn't seem that appropriate.

There are some huge inaccuracies, but this isn't an exact documentary. It is a movie trying to show the struggles of some people that went through an extraordinary circumstance. It is based on the truth.



If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

Yeah the 747 style doors, and the curtains closed during taxi and take off,

That aside, it is just very scary to watch. I keep having to remind myself that this is no AIRPORT movie but reality.

Or may they be forgiven by God and saved from hell.

I started watching the movie and it just became too emotional. I had to switch to Friends in order to get it off my mind. I can't stand reliving that awful day.

Being a PROUD AMERICAN, It would suit me fine if they showed this stuff everyday!! As we should never forget what it would have been like to be on one of those planes, and in that horrible situation. I am one of those people who woke up and became educated after 9/11, and it lights a fire under me every time I am reminded of that dreadful day.

Overall it was a well done show. Some miscues with technicalities but nothing glaring in my opinion.

I thought it was kind of cheesy and in poor taste. Then they ran the last scene of the scar on the land healing itself with the passing of the seasons.....Then they ran the list of names....

Sometimes all you can do is look them in the eye and ask " how much did your mom drink when she was pregnant with you?"

What got me was playing in my mind the absolute terror, then resolve of the passengers. Sometimes the suspension of disbelief that some movies/shows have give way to real life perceptions.

Talk about a lump in ones throat.

According to the news reports.... although we've seen the mistakes concerning the airplanes in the movie... They really did their homework regarding the events that took place. Listening to hours of audio... reading miles of transcripts from eyewitness accounts... Its one of the movies so far approved by the families of flight 93. I must say they were smart, grabbing anything to defend themselves... If they only had more time......

Overall, I found this film to be emotionally intense and very sad to watch.


I was quite shocked to read the first reply to the initial post was "Let's count the bloopers!!"

This movie was not intended to be a comedy. I am surprised some would see it in that way.

Looked like a 757 cabin to me, and that's where the majority of the story takes place. Why would the landing gear retraction shot make a difference to the story?

For a made for TV movie, I thought A&E did very well. Hollywood has done worse.

A New York Times article panned the Discovery channel's "The Flight that Fought Back" and said that this documentary was better.....I don't know about that....but it was still very good....One thing I didn't like was that the Livery was not the "right" one and that the boarding passes were more like US Airways than United......but anything historical about Flight 93 is heart-wrenching.....especially the fact that the pilots didn't lock the cockpit doors even after United sent them warning messages.......

Ironically I just wanted the one that was on History Channel that I had on my DVR still from 9/11 last year just last Friday (I saw it on 9/11 but I figured i'd watch it again). Then I was watching A&E during some program and saw an ad for UAL93 tonight.

I went and donated all I can right now...$50 (i'm a poor college flight student) so that was the best I could do. If I had a high paying job i'd go for a lot more than that.

I dont know if anyone else knows the site... http://www.honorflight93.org

Surprised they didnt post it on this movie, the history channel one they did at the end.

FYI - Supposedly they're going to build a memorial. The design is supposed to be absolutely stunning (at a cost $30,000,000)

Interesting info - I never knew congress wanted the memorial site built too! Nice to see the government involved in something like this: http://www.flight93memorialproject.org/timeline.asp

Here it is - Best memorial site i've ever seen

This movie was terrible, seamed very cheesy and poorly done. There was another movie a few months back that was very good used the actual phone calls and had interviews with families and was an emotionally powerful thing to watch. This had me waiting for Chuck Norris to pop out and save the day.

One thing I don't understand is why they even made this movie in the first place.

Why, you ask?

There is a movie coming out to theatres. It's not an A&E movie, but it has the same title and everything.

I am aware of the passengers heroic efforts on that tragic day and was using the Chuck Norris analogy to say that this movie looked like a bad Walker Texas Ranger episode.

I feel the same way. They are true heroes but let them rest in peace already.

You guys watch the ATC documentary before this show about how they landed all the planes that morning? That was interesting but I am not watching the movie now.

I think you are talking about 'Clearing the Skies' on PBS. That was also a good one.

With the movie Flight 93 coming out in April I wonder if it will be any different than this A&E production?
