Plane Crash in the High Sierras

Real Survival Stories

08-02-2024 • 51 mins

In 1976, Lauren Elder takes up the last-minute offer of a sightseeing flight with some friends. The plan is to range out over the desert, stop for a picnic, then head home before it’s dark. As she boards the light aircraft, Lauren never imagines she’ll end up stranded on a mountaintop. There she’ll face a desperate choice: wait for a rescue that may never materialise? Or descend the wall of rock and ice… alone? A Noiser production, written by Susan Allott. For more on Lauren’s story read And I Alone Survived.
