[edit] Information

Terror in the Skies: Series 1 While plane crashes are rare, near misses in our crowded skies are anything but. Thanks to modern technology, these terrifying experiences are being captured more and more, as they happen, on cameras, mobile phones, and cockpit recordings, providing insights that are as informative as they are horrifying. See firsthand how recent pilot errors, technical failures, small mistakes, and big storms have placed passengers in life-or-death situations. Then discover why these incidents happened, and what must be done to prevent them from reoccurring.

[edit] Pilot Error

A pilot falls asleep in the cockpit. Another suffers a panic attack in the cabin. Yet another overshoots his destination by 150 miles. Are these freak occurrences or the new normal in air travel?

[edit] Technical Meltdown

Any plane could experience a technical meltdown at any time. Witness recent failures captured by passengers' videos and hear their stories as we investigate air disasters caused by faulty equipment.

[edit] Small Mistakes

It takes over a hundred people to keep one airliner flying, and almost everyone involved perform safety-critical roles. See how a loose bolt, a fatigue crack and other small issues have led to big problems for pilots and their passengers.

[edit] Nature Strikes Back

As passengers, we expect to be able to fly anywhere, anytime. But sometimes nature has other plans. See what happens when wicked storms, wild turbulence, and angry birds strike modern airliners.
