As one of the comments said, "Why isn't this a movie?"
It's more far fetched than Alastair MacLain at his most … far fetchedness.

If you took this script to Hollywood they would probably not believe it was a true story and laugh you out of town. Got to get Tom Hanks to play the pilot.

That was quite interesting. The most telling part for me was that, after almost a month away from home and during a brand new shooting war, they had to circle New York for an hour when they arrived because local regulations didn't allow them to land before 7 am.

Bureaucracy in action!
