Prime Focus is delighted to announce that it has completed audio and picture post for Minnow Films’ new documentary for Channel 4, ‘Fatal Flight 447: Chaos in the Cockpit.’ This harrowing film explores the baffling incident of Air France Flight 447 – a passenger jet scheduled for an everyday flight from Rio de Janeiro to Paris – which seemingly inexplicably dropped out of the sky above the Atlantic Ocean, taking the lives of all 228 passengers and crew.
With black box recorders missing, the mystery of how one of the world’s most technologically advanced planes could befall such a devastating tragedy remained unsolved for nearly two years. But with the black box recorders located, this documentary delves into the details and examines the tragedy of this doomed airliner, asking what we’ve learned, what we could have changed and what exactly happened on board.
Prime Focus’ Kevin Horsewood graded the production; Ronnie Newman delivered online editing services and Liam Milner mixed the show. The post producer was Will Garbutt.
