    Alive (1993)

    While watching an amazing documentary 'I'm Alive: Surviving the Andes Plane Crash' on the History Channel today, reminded me of one of the coolest plane crashes to be re-created for film or to ever be seen. Sadly, despite being based on a extraordinary true life event back in 1972, having one of the worst aviation records (Fairchild Hiller FH-227) in history, and taken off on all days... Friday the 13th.

    Uruguayan Air Force Flight 571 flight is stuff of legends, and how far human survival would go. The event produced books, movies, etc. The 1993 film version Alive, in my opinion, has one of the best airplane crashes in cinema. See some familiar faces? Can you spot Josh Lucas? The action starts at the 6 minute mark, no doubt, an intense sequence...

    but the plane crash was just the beginning. For 72 days, they were on their own up in the Andes, facing bitter cold to starvation to avalanches, to the unthinkable.

    Better quality (720HD) but in French subtitles but fear is universal no doubt & in widescreen.

    I saw the movie when it was released. Very intense crash scene. And afterwards, I'm sure none of them said it tastes like chicken.
