2013-05-21 by

“Hearts of Courage” brings to life the amazing, true account of the 1943 Gillam plane crash in the wilderness of Southeast Alaska.

Pilot Harold Gillam, along with five others, including engineer Joseph Tippets, left Seattle on January 5 and were en route to a scheduled refueling stop near Ketchikan when disaster struck.

The harrowing events that followed required tremendous courage, enormous ingenuity, perseverance and many small miracles. The passengers endured sub-zero temperatures and scarce food for 29 days until a dramatic rescue saved them.
