Flying has become the way to travel for millions of people around the world. It's also statistically a safe way to travel. But when things go wrong, the results are monumental and tragic.
Episode 1 - As technology improves minimizing mechanical problems, pilot error emerges as the cause of two out of every three crashes. BLAMING THE PILOT examines the conditions and the personality types that may contribute to pilot error.
Episode 2- Worldwide, weather contributes to one-third of all plane crashes. DEADLY WEATHER examines in-depth the types of weather conditions that cause accidents - from wind shear, to ice, to freak storms.
Episode 3 - What causes planes to go down? Sometimes it's lax maintenance, sometimes it's poor engineering, and sometimes it's a structural problem that's been overlooked. A WING AND A PRAYER uncovers what happens when things go wrong with the planes.
Episode 4 - CRASH DETECTIVES presents never-before-seen footage shot especially for this series. NTSB (National Transportation Safety Board) investigators take viewers to the actual crash sight of Florida ValuJet in the Everglades.
Whether you are a fearless frequent flyer or someone who would never step onto a plane, you will be fascinated by this amazing investigation into air travel.
