Denzel Washington Earns His Wings In Exclusive ‘Flight’ Featurette

To create a realistic scene of a pilot guiding an airliner safely to the ground—expect, you know, upside down—Denzel Washington trained in a professional flight simulator.

A featurette included on the upcoming Blu-ray and DVD of “Flight” gives the audience an intimate look at the kind of training Washington did to prepare for the role of Whip Whitaker by joining his co-star Brian Geraghty as he revisits the flight simulator he trained on as well.

MTV News has an exclusive look at the featurette above.

Keep your eyes out for “Flight” on Blu-ray and DVD when it hits shelves on February 5.
