Seems to be a rather meaningless video 97 percent concerned with the innate drama of the situation--screaming passengers, black-of-night ditching, miraculous rescue, lots of emotional shots of people saying, "It was horrible..."

The other three percent mentions some dispensation--never further explained--whereby Australian air-ambulance flights can apparently file VFR with only VFR fuel. And the chief pilot of Pel-Air (or whatever his position is) calmly explains to the "reporter," "I've already explained to you on the telephone all our reasons and explanations for this..." None of which are provided to the audience. Baffling.
