Air Disasters: Gimli Glider
It was a brand new, state-of-the-art 767, a 95-ton flying machine that suddenly lost its ability to fly. At an altitude of over 26,000 feet, fuel pressure was low, but for the pilots of Air Canada Flight 143, the pressure was at an all-time high. How could they land a jumbo plane with no working engines? Where could they land it? Journey back to 1983 and enter the cockpit, the cabin and the control towers as witness accounts, official records, and dramatic recreations combine to bring this doomsday flight to life.
