[edit] Information

Flying is one of the safest forms of transport. But what happens when tragedy strikes? From human error and accidents to mechanical faults and design flaws, the success of aviation history is punctuated with disaster and catastrophe. It's rare, but it does happen. Follow experts as they determine what went wrong and work out how to prevent these horrific tragedies from happening again. Examine the wrecks and official records, and hear from eyewitnesses, passengers and aviation experts as we reconstruct some of the most tragic disasters in aviation history. "Air Crash Investigation" looks at what went wrong and how future disasters can be averted. On 26 June 1988, Air France Flight 296 fails to climb and crashes into trees after performing a fly-by during an airshow at Mulhouse-Habsheim Airport, killing three people. The cause of this crash remains in dispute. It was supposed to be the pride of France but the Airbus A320 would become a national embarrassment after crashing at an airshow on its maiden passenger flight. Investigators are under heavy pressure to determine why the world's most sophisticated passenger jet failed. The conclusion they reach is a controversial one, and remains so to this day. Revisit the 1988 crash of Air France Flight 296, and see how hasty planning, a risky flight maneuver, and a high-tech computer designed to ensure a plane's safety, all contributed to the tragic accident.
