It's the summer of 1982. Canada World Airways' brand-new Boeing 767 leaves Montreal bound for Edmonton. When the plane reaches its cruise altitude, the impossible happens: the plane runs out of fuel, due to a miscalculation by the ground staff in Montreal. Captain Bob Pearson and First Officer Maurice Quintal face a potentially deadly disaster in this true story, as the 767, with about 60 souls on board, slowly falls from the sky. Written by

How's things in the cabin? Busy?
It's less than half-full! But I prefer when it's so busy. Then, I can't stop. Time goes by faster.
Well, you wouldn't get to enjoy the flight, eh?
That's fine by me. I hate flying.
