Tom Hanks narrates the thrilling new trailer

The film follows the dramatic turn of events after a plane loses power of both of its engines at 2800 ft whilst carrying 155 passengers on-board.

The pilot of the plane who had been flying for 40 years had plenty of experience but started to be questioned when they discovered that the left engine was in fact still in power. The exciting trailer hears protagonist Hanks say “No-one warned us, no-one said you were going to lose both engines at a lower altitude than any jet in history. This was dual engine loss at 2800 ft followed by immediate water landing...with 155 souls on- board. No-one has ever trained for an incident like that.”
