What's it like to be in a plane crash? Most of us will luckily never know that feeling.

If you're curious though, check out the heart-pounding vision above of how the new Denzel Washington thriller Flight stages what has been called "the hairiest, scariest, most realistic and thrilling plane crash in movie history" by TIME magazine.

In this MovieFIX exclusive, Denzel, director Robert Zemeckis and the crew take us on a crash course (eeek) of the phenomenal plane simulator used to create Flight's mid-air catastrophe. Nothing like hanging upside-down in a plane, right?

Nominated for two Academy Awards (Best Actor and Best Original Screenplay), Flight tells the true story of a seasoned pilot (Denzel) who crash lands his plane and saves nearly everyone on board. But is he a hero or was it his fault?

Flight is in cinemas January 31. Vote 'want to see' or 'not interested' on MovieBuzz now!
