The first official image for the faith-based survival film, On a Wing and a Prayer, has been released. On a Wing and a Prayer stars Dennis Quaid and Heather Graham in a story about a man who must fly a plane to safety in order to save his family after the pilot dies.

The first image for On a Wing and a Prayer is simple, yet still manages to give a good indication of what to expect from the film. The image depicts Quaid as Doug White, sitting in the cockpit of a plane with a frightened yet determined expression on his face. Doug is attempting to fly the plane, donning headphones and shifting the gears. Beside him sits his wife, played by Graham, who is acting as a supportive co-pilot. The couple’s children can be seen from afar while they sit in their seats, hoping their parents will guide them to safety in the cockpit. The image is suspenseful, but also emits an enigmatic sense of calm.

Autumn Bailey-Ford, Roma Downey, and Karl Horstmann serve as producers on the film while Marco Henry acts as the executive producer.
