Out of the Wreckage: Plane Crash Survivors

In this special documentary we meet the survivors of some of the worst commercial crashes in aviation history – individuals who have cheated death by the slimmest of margins and crawled out of the wreckage to tell their tales.

In their own words, via in-depth interviews and alongside dramatic archive footage of the actual crashes, survivors tell their heart-stopping stories of survival and heart-warming stories of recovery and personal redemption.

Through their unique stories, universal truths emerge about what it means to survive and what it means to live. Their life affirming stories offer a powerful message for us all.
