Filming took place during the winter of 2010 and was hampered by the heavy snowfall that year. Only on the two days when the scenes of the plane crash in the snow were filmed, there was no natural snow and snow machines had to be employed. See more »
In the long shots of the Airspeed Ambassador outside the terminal the propellers can be seen slowly turning. The Ambassador was a piston engined aircraft, the props would not rotate slowly like a turbo-prop engine. See more »

Just finished watching it. Let me admit, I'm a huge United fan. That might have biased my approach to this 90 minute gem, but nevertheless I'll try and keep it as neutral as I can possibly be. Its touching, and really well made. Even a non-United fan will second my opinion of this movie. Been a long time any movie could get me this emotional. The acting and the music to go with all the different stages of it, pure brilliance. Won't want to ruin a perfect 90 minutes for ya, so won't get into the details. To keep it simple, for a football fan, its a must watch, even if thats the last thing you ever do. For a United fan, this will be the first of the many times you're gonna watch it. Masterpiece.
