Flight 990




Description

الشرح

Noon Films has recently finished a three-year production of an investigative documentary into the crash of Flight 990 bound for Cairo Egypt from New York in 1999. Since the event, there has been a lot of controversy over what happened and the FBI investigation eventually ruled that it was pilot suicide. The documentary stems from secret documents and exclusive recordings, revealed for the first time to the public, of the plane's black box, uncovering the final movements of crew members whilst the aircraft was plummeting from its cruising altitude. It also includes interviews with former officials that led the investigations at the time, aviation experts and eyewitnesses. The film seeks to factually arrive at the causes of the Boeing 767 air crash and to assess the credibility of the claim that the plane's captain was responsible for the disaster that cost the lives of 217 passengers including 33 Egyptian military personnel. It also sheds light on the manner in which the Egyptian authorities dealt with the US-led investigation.
