The plane at the end is taking off at a completely different airport (and at a completely different time), as witnessed by the trees alongside the runway. There are no trees along either of the KSUX runways. See more »

Chris Porter: Uh, Sir? that, uh, runway is closed. That's 22, Sir. But if you have to, you can line up on it.
Al Haynes: Well, we're pretty well lined up now. How long is that runway?

Shows the miracle of crew skill and community organization.
18 April 2002 | by (Tucson, Arizona) – See all my reviews

Although I scored this film as a "6" because it suffered some from lack of character development and pedestrian acting, it is a powerful viewing experience. A skilled United Airlines crew and unprecedented community organization saved many. In fact, the emergency workers in the Sioux City area achieved, on a smaller scale, what those in New York did in 2001. Charlton Heston was ideal in the role of Captain Al Haynes.

I worked in the city government at Sioux City and then at St. Luke's Regional Medical Center years before these events. I participated in some of the very early planning that paid off in 1998. What I saw in the film rings true.
