Summary

The events on board a Canadian Air Transat Airbus that began leaking fuel over the Atlantic in 2001. The engines stopped and pilots effectively operated the plane as a glider, before managing a violent landing in which eight tyres were blown - but the lives of 306 passengers and crew were saved.
