Sole Survivor Of Metro Airport Crash Breaks Her Silence

ROMULUS, Mich. (WWJ) - After more than 20 years, Cecelia Cichan is finally breaking her silence about Northwest Flight 255, which crashed at Metro Airport nearly 25 years ago -- killing everyone on board but her.

Cichan tells her story in the documentary "Sole Survivor," which looks at 14 people, each of whom was the only survivor of a major passenger airplane crash. Cichan is shown with a tattoo of an airplane on the inside of her wrist.

Here's what the producers have to say about Cichan on their blog:

Meeting Cecelia Cichan

In August of 2011, we had the pleasure of interviewing Cecelia Cichan, the Sole Survivor of Northwest Flight 255. Our interview with Cecelia was the first that she's ever given about her accident and we feel grateful to include her positive outlook, loving insight, bright smile, and honest reflection in this film. Cecelia is an astounding person, a humble observer and an inspiring example of how one can pick up their life after a tragedy.

"Sole Survivor" is scheduled to be finished this summer.
