NOT ONLY A MOVIE,
28 December 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

A couple of F A C T S

This movie about EAL's flt 401 is NOT ONLY a movie,but in 95% of the movie,(some parts of movie were for drama only)it is based on the flt data & cockpit voice recorder,but IT IS 100% TRUE,about the crew member,(2nd officer) Some of the parts that were refurbished & reused on other company aircraft(and on a cple of other airlines where some the parts from 401 were put on,) TRAINED FLT CREWS saw this "ghost", but it was kept very hush,hush,if you mentioned it 99.99% of the time you lost your job.(would you want to be on a flt where a Capt or 1st officer said he had seen a ghost on board) and the "'ghost" was even caught on the CVR,(cockpit voice recorder) giving a warning to a flt crew about a on board fire befor it happened.The L10-was the "Queen of the skies",then but she did have some flaws, unforunately it took one "going in"(a crash) to discovery & correct these problems,I know about this "bird,(plane)& this airline for I & 25,000+ people once worked for this great airline,,,
