When Scott shows Dianne the re-enactment of the plane crash the first time, there is no arrow behind the tail, indicating the position of the rudder. The arrow only appears immediately after Scott rewinds the videotape and plays it back. See more »

A Fictional Account of a Plane Crash!
17 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's a television film with Cheryl Ladd as the pilot's wife. She is happily married but she and her husband want a child. Their only child died as an infant. In this film, her husband and airline pilot are carrying a load of passengers from Washington-Baltimore to Kansas City but something happens. Nobody knows quite for sure about the cause of the accident but the pilot, a passenger, and a golden retriever survive the crash. Diane, Ladd's character, is convinced that her husband shouldn't be blamed for the crash and is determined to set him free regardless of the press, airline, and the authorities seeking somebody to blame and fault for the loss of lives. It's not a bad film but it's not great and Cheryl gives it her all and proves that she's not just another pretty actress.
