A web based short film, Second Chance, I did a few years back, inspired by US Airways Flight 1549. The flight that took off from LaGuardia Airport in New York, struck a flock of birds and lost power in both engines. As the plane fell from the sky, a husband and father has visions of the future he might never get to experience. You can watch the film here.
