Brandon, I watched the one made for TV, and it was excellent, but, as you observed, scary from two points of view.
Did the big screen version leave you with the impression that the plane was the victim of friendly fire? I have always wondered about that.
We have the TV one taped and may watch it tonight.
No, the film certainly did not give the impression that the plane was fired upon. In fact, at the time that it crashed, the military was desperately requesting clarification of their rules of engagement. They did not have permission to shoot the planes down at that time. The crash was explained in terms of the extremely low altitude and the struggle for control.
