93 The Flight that Fought Back

The Discovery Channel presents a documentary that looks promising: This Sunday at 9pm.

Love the Chris Muir 'toon. I can't wait to see the day CNN reaps their rewards :)

I missed the Discovery program, care to give your opinion?

I linked to the Day by Day cartoon, so you can always scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page to see the current one.

I did a copy and paste of a comment I left on it at Sister Toldjah:

It was alright. I’m not a fan of recreations though, and it’s tone reminded me much of that forensic detective series I used to watch on Discovery Channel…”New Detective”, I think it was. Still, it’s probably as good as any documentary that could have been done with the available facts. It inspires and I have no doubt that the passengers averted a 4th catastrophe. Thank God for cell phones and that they were able to get a grasp of what was going on with the other attacks that happened, and that they had the courage and resolution to make a choice and not just be passive victims.

I just am bothered by assumptions and guesswork as to how individuals might have been responding. I know we need heroes, and heroes they were…but I don’t like to overstretch the physical prowess of some of the passengers.

There’s a good chance, too, that the heroic struggle was more dramatic than even we could possibly be imagining.
