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 »

This movie is NOT stupid.
10 October 2003 | by (Munich, Germany) – See all my reviews

I have to admit that I actually never watched the movie, but I wanted to add some facts to franzi775's post, since it's some sort of misinformation.

Miracle Landing is based on a true accident, like already said by other comments, and covers the story of flight 243 of Aloha Airlines.

Indeed, sudden explosive decompression CAN lead to a complete loss of an aircraft, but it MUST not! Besides Aloha 243 there are some similar accidents that did end up *quite* fortunately, e.g. United flight 801, 10 months later.

Thus... the movie is realistic, rather than stupid! Sorry, but had to set things right.
