Available on DVD at pilot-errormovie.com/pilot-error-dvd/ worldwide and via Vimeo streaming at vimeo.com/ondemand/ piloterror, this fictional drama film is inspired by the true story of Air France 447. The story is eerily similar to Malaysia Air 370. It focuses on investigative reporter Nicola Wilson's effort to determine why a jet headed from South America to Paris disappeared in the Atlantic, taking her close friend and 211 other passengers with it. How can a plane just disappear?
As Nicola digs deeper and deeper into this mystery, she puts her job, friends and very livelihood on the the line. Even though she knows nothing about aviation, refuses to fly and doesn't speak French, Nicola quickly uncovers astonishing details about the missing flight. Was it preventable? Has it happened before ? Could it happen again? And was it PILOT ERROR?
Starring award winning actress Kate Thomsen, the film was produced by Roger Rapoport who cowrote the screenplay with director Joe Anderson. Costars include Richard Riehle, Robert Cicchini and Jennifer Jelsema. The cinematographer was David Darling. who worked with Bruce Schermer. Pilot Error was edited by Gene Gamache with a score by emmy award winner Garth Neustadter.
Air France 447 was the first of three aerodynamic stalls in the South Atlantic, Asia and Africa over the past seven years that have taken the lives of 506 passengers.
