On A Wing And A Prayer: Jesse Metcalfe Plays Real Pilot in this True Story
In this extraordinary true story of faith and survival, On a Wing and a Prayer follows a family’s
harrowing journey to land a plane safely after their pilot unexpectedly dies mid-flight. With no
experience flying the twin-engine aircraft, Doug White, played by Dennis Quaid struggles to save his entire family from seemingly certain tragedy. With the help of a far-flung group of determined “angels,” including another pilot named Kari, played by Jesse Metcalfe. They join forces in a race against time and weather, the Whites learn a great deal about themselves, each other and the miracles that simple faith can achieve.
We talked with Metcalfe about playing a real pilot, all the jargon needed to learned, hope and stepping into the difficult.
