Trivia

The aircraft used for the movie (bearing the colors of fictitious Paradise Airlines) is a Boeing 737-297 Advanced, registered as N70723. At the time, it was owned by Aloha Airlines (which is the airline involved in the incident of flight 243). That aircraft has been re-registered C-GCWJ and is flying currently (2005) for WestJet Airlines in Canada. See more »

Goofs

In the beginning of the movie, while in the simulator, a "rapid decompression" scenario is thrown at the crew. But with clearance to land AND the runway in sight, there's no way they'd be at 8,000 feet (the maximum normal airliner cabin pressure), let alone the 10,000 feet James Cromwell mentions outside the simulator. And as the plane descends toward the airport, the pressure reduces gently anyway to match the ambient air pressure of the destination. See more »

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.
