Exciting heartfelt drama with a wonderful miraculous ending.
25 February 2000 | by (El Paso, TX) – See all my reviews

Miracle Landing, in my opinion, is a superb show involving everyday people caught up in a terrible potential disaster. It is very realistic and I couldn't help but feel for all those people on that flight. The heroism of the crew shows the spirit that each of us have inside to overcome adversity and work toward a common good. Very well done.
