Everyone likes an inspirational story and one that’s especially true. This coming Easter weekend Prime Video have one of those stories with A Wing And A Prayer.
The true story stars Dennis Quaid and Heather Graham as Doug and Terri White. Back in 2009 the real Doug and Terri where on their way home to Louisiana. After attending Doug’s brother’s funeral in Florida, when the pilot of the plane suffers a fatal heart attack. Doug took command of the plane to fly his two daughters and wife back to safety. With the help of a pilot from the ground (played by Jesse Metcalfe) back to safety.
It’s an astonishing story as no one onboard had any flying experience. The one possible saviour is the plane was a Beechcraft Super King Air 200, considered of ‘new’ pilot’s starting plane. That is no comfort to Doug but his interaction and listening to experts saved him!
We are still waiting for the first Trailer, for now Prime Video have released a first look image. That image shows Doug with Terri in mid flight, attempting to fly to safety.
In this extraordinary true story of faith and survival, On a Wing and a Prayer follows passenger Doug White’s (Dennis Quaid) harrowing journey to safely land a plane and save his entire family from insurmountable danger, after their pilot dies unexpectedly mid-flight.
On A Wing And A Prayer will be released on Prime Video from 7th April.
