Tony Nappa

This episode entitled "Air Emrgency: Grand Canyon Collision",actor Tony Nappa played my uncle, Gerard Fiore, 1916-1956. He was the flight engineer on United Airlines Flight 718 involved in Grand Canyon crash of 6-30-1956. He did a fine portrayal of my uncle. My uncle's name was "Gerard" not "Gerald" as shown on IMDb. My uncle was concerned about airline safety during all his years in aviation. This show was an excellent portrayal of the investigation proceeded. This episode was tough to watch but the information gleaned from the investigation is appreciated. This episode did a fine portrayal of this tragic event in my family's history.
