First having aired on TV in 1992, CRASH LANDING is a highly well-made
dramatization of the saga of United Airlines Flight 232 which, while enroute
from Denver to Chicago on July 19, 1989, suffered a catastrophic explosion
in its tail engine which severed all the plane's hydraulic lines. This
meant that the crew, led by Captain Al Haynes, had almost no control over
the aircraft, and that they would have to come in for an extremely difficult
landing at Gateway Airport in Sioux City, Iowa. With no way to stop, the
plane broke up on impact, scattering debris across the runway and into
nearby cornfields. But miraculously, of the 296 people onboard, including
Haynes and his crew, 184 managed to survive the horrific
Utilizing some of the actual TV footage of UAL 232 coming in for landing and
breaking apart upon touchdown, CRASH LANDING details how Haynes and his crew
managed to keep the plane in the air long enough to attempt the landing in
Sioux City, and how the Sioux City ground crew was prepared for the ultimate
emergency. Charlton Heston does his usual professional job in his portrayal
of Al Haynes, and James Coburn is equally commanding as Jim Hathaway, the
chief emergency coordinator at Sioux City. Richard Thomas, though he does
not necessarily escape his "John boy" image from "The Waltons", also scores
as the green rookie on Coburn's ground crew.
Although it is a TV movie, the story and cast are all ably directed by
veteran Lamont Johnson, with a good script by Harve Bennett (STAR TREK III).
CRASH LANDING (later retitled A THOUSAND HEROES) is one of the best
true-life airline disaster survival stories ever put on TV, and is well
