There are misfortunes that unfortunately happen. Airplane Crashes is one of them. We do not want it to happen, but the reality is that although the plane is one of the safest means of transportation to travel, there is always a small risk of an accident. In the case of the Airplane, this minimal possibility can be tragic. From people who have truly experienced this tragic event the moments before the crash can be a hell of emotions.

To portrayal this to the screen is not such an easy thing, it needs not only a good directing but also the effort of every people involved on the scene to create this intense atmosphere of agony.

Which one of these scenes, you think better aproached a real situation?

Note:

I want more suggestions to this poll but i'm only looking for Airplane Crashes with a more realistic perspetive. Airplane Crashes the type "TDKR" or "WWZ" it's not what i am looking for.


It's more from what it is on the list.

The Airplanecrash in 'Knowing'. It was very loud, intense and shocking.
The sound department did their best! ;)

The airplane-crash in 'Kingdom of the Spiders'. A crasher with intense gesture and facial expression.

They are specifically related to the scene, although I think the second one is a shot that wasn't used in the cutout because of the angle. I opted for the first one

I added, The Grey airplane crash, i opted for another image that is more approximately to the moment of the crash scene. I've saw the movie about 3 months ago and altough the premise of the movie is silly, it's somehow quite entertaining.

It wasn't bad but it wasn't good either.

Yes, i would like to have images related to that specific moment but i've tried to found and nothing. Mostly of the images that are in my polls are images that i submitted in order to get right my own criteria.

For example, it's hard to find an image of the moments of agony in The Grey or The Aviator. So, i have to include an image more aproximately to the scene.

I immediately thought of Alive, it was certainly the highlight of a rather average movie, I think it was aided by computer imagery and in the 90s it looked pretty impressive.

I can strongly relate to that poll, I suffer from fear of flying and these movies depicted exactly the kind of sensations I dreaded, feeling all powerless and dependent on the skills and decisions of competent but not infaillible men.

FYC:
Plane crash from Alfred Hitchcock's Foreign Correspondent (1940) absolutely should be there! It still holds up exceptionally well and is a jaw-dropping technical masterpiece. 

It's interesting that I have certain fondness for plane crash movies but actually can only recommend fewer of them. I guess it's a leftover from my childhood excitement over sketch comedy show "Kalambur" which had an awesome recurring segment in which a single tedious plane crash is a basis of 400+ episode US TV series.

Good poll. My vote: United 93.

May I suggest a few edits to the intro? (except for the longer comment at the end, the little edits are below in bold; very sensitive and well written intro, btw)

There are misfortunes that sadly happen, including airplane crashes. We do not want them to happen, but the reality is that although the plane is one of the safest means of transportation to travel, there is always a small risk of an accident. In the case of the Airplane, this minimal possibility can be tragic. From people who have truly experienced this tragic event, the moments before the crash can be a hell of emotions.

To portray this on the screen is not such an easy thing; it needs not only good directing but also the effort of every person involved on the scene to create this intense atmosphere of agony.

Which one of these scenes, you think better aproached a real situation? (Since two of the movies portray what were real situations, perhaps ask a different question? Since you mention, very compellingly, the "hell of emotions" and the "intense atmosphere of agony," and the title mentions "intense," maybe something like "Which of these scenes do you think best portrays the emotional intensity of these tragic situations?")
