  • Surviving the ‘unsurvivable’ plane crash: Tom Wilson woke up soaked in fuel. He was on fire

    Tom Wilson was dozing during a short flight to a remote work site in the mountains north of Vancouver when he awoke with a start. “It was over so quick, nobody even had a chance to scream,” Wilson says, recalling the November 2008 crash that claimed the lives of everyone else on board.
