Hey A.netters,

I was going through some of the episodes of Mayday on Youtube, and I was wondering,

Do they recreate the "crash site" in a studio? or
Do they shoot against the green screen?

The reason why I'm curious is, because the debris around the field does look accurate (so does the evidence) and I bet its a painful task setting up and cleaning up after it.

Thank you for all the responses in advance,
Happy landings
Aditya

Which episodes would this be? Some footage is taken from news reports of the actual sites... Might you be getting confused with those?

I know the interior of the planes they use is always an Airbus A300-600 interior no matter what the aircraft!

They put a partition down the middle to make it look like a narrowbody. Look at the overhead bins, they're the same as the ones found on an A300-600 or A310. Airbus bins before and after the A300-600 are shaped differently

Good point...They seem to forget that the 737 is 3-3, not 2-2 sometimes...

I am pretty sure they had a 2-2-2 (or 2-3-2) for a 737 at least one time... For the Dubrovnik crash. Otherwise, I dont really look at these things, really I cant, it just makes me sad.

I always think the same thing but in the starting they say that it is from the eyewitness accounts so first responders and investigators might help the series development.

On the side note anyone know when is the new episodes coming? Also this is my first reply since I joined just now lol

Other than the real footage, my guess is that it is using CGI (computer-generated imagery) as this would be the easiest and most cost effective? Looks very real, but CGI can be very IMHO - but also looks too sharp, particularly with the older episodes and footage..   

It also mentions it here on Wikipedia.. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mayday_(TV_series)

I find it to be extremely interesting and some dramatic narrating aside (A380 Titanic in the sky???  ) it is very informative and fun! Plus some "money shots" are very well directed. Mid air collision over Germany comes to mind. Any news on the new season?
