Posted: Updated:

SPRING GREEN (WKOW) -- 'Pilot Error,' the up to the minute feature film inspired by the true story of a French airliner missing in the Atlantic, plays at the Gard Theater in Spring Green Sunday, September 23 at 7 p.m. and September 27 at 1 p.m.

Co-star Deborah Staples, will be joined by veteran Madison based training pilot and accident investigator Robert Hesselbein for a post screening talkback.  There will also be a meet and greet with Staples and Hesselbein at Arcadia Books across from the theater on September 23 at 6 p.m.

On Monday, Hesselbein stopped by Wake Up Wisconsin to talk about the film.

Based on the true story of Air France 447, the film explores many of the questions being asked following the similar loss of another jet, Malaysia Air 370 in March 2014.  Pilots nationwide have welcomed Pilot Error’s nuanced look at their profession.

The film, which is appearing on over 200 screens in America and abroad was filmed on location in Milwaukee and Appleton.
