This special edited-version of the classic CRM Learning program, Teamwork in Crisis, tells the amazing story of United Airlines Flight 232. In less than ten minutes, the video shows how teams in the cockpit and on the ground resisted panic when the plane experienced potentially catastrophic mechanical failure... leading to an outcome far better than anyone would have predicted.
United Airlines Flight 232 was on a routine flight when one of its primary engines failed and the plane experienced the complete loss of hydraulic power—a situation so dire, it was doubtful anyone would survive. However, by finding help in non-traditional places and communicating clearly as a team, the captain and his crew were able to use the two remaining engines to crudely steer the crippled plane and bring it into Sioux Gateway Airport. The exceptional emergency crews on the ground took control of things from there. While some passengers were lost, the outcome was far better than expected and 184 people survived.
This unforgettable story is told through dramatic re-enactment, interviews with airline and ground personnel and actual footage of the incident.
