Lights, Camera - Action!

There’s an article in the Local section today describing how a group of local actors have been chosen to perform a re-enactment of the 1989 crash of Flight 232. National Geographic is creating the documentary as part of a series of shows about accidents. The actual crash which happened in Sioux City Iowa killed 112 people out of 296. The article says that the passengers had to endure “45 horrifying minutes as pilots wrestled the craft down.” Sounds like a nice show to watch while relaxing on the sofa doesn’t it?

The funny thing is the actors who were chosen for the parts have not seen a script, they have to buy their own 80’s costumes to be filmed and in they’re only getting paid $80 a day.

I hope none of them quit their day job.
