About the Project
We produced the spots for the world broadcast premiere on FX for Flight for its first landing on television. When a disastrous mechanical malfunction sends a commercial jet hurtling to the ground, the pilot (Denzel Washington) pulls off the impossible and saves nearly everyone on board with a miraculous crash landing. But his luck runs out when the investigation reveals his addiction to drugs and alcohol.

Did you know?
– The crash depicted in the film was inspired by the real life disaster of Alaska Airlines Flight 261. The pilots in the real accidents rolled the plane to an inverted position to halt the dive, but were unsuccessful due to inadequate maintenance of the plane.
– Reportedly, the primary plane used in the film is a combination of multiple plane types. The goal was to limit any confusion between any particular airline or plane.
– Director Robert Zemeckis is a pilot.
