I'm trying to remember if I saw this when it first aired on TV, but my memory is faulty on some things going back to the nineties. I think I'll watch this youtube version first chance I get and see if it rings a bell.

I still haven't gotten around to watching it, but a few days ago I was rummaging through an old box in my garage and took out several issues of TV Guide magazine from 1992. One of these was dated February 22-28, 1992 and I soon found out that CRASH LANDING:THE RESCUE OF FLIGHT 232 first aired during that week, on Monday, Feb.24th. Here's the original listing and page ad inside that issue, on pages #120-121:

Here also is the write-up/short review (given 3 stars) earlier in the guide on pg.32,
which summarizes the movies airing that week:

>>> I also posted a larger image of the listing, seen on the right just above this sentence, for better reading.

What is weird is that I just noticed a write-up underneath the one for Heston's movie, for some mini-series called Grass Roots, which, it is written, is a sequel to Heston's mini-series, Chiefs ! I never even heard of this Grass Roots until now! :o :-?

Whaaaa?! I too never heard of such a thing! That's a must-see for me. Thanks for the tip and the scans!
