New Accident T.V Show On SKY

Thu Mar 04, 2004 2:05 am

Last night my mum recorded for me a new T.V show on National Geographic (on sky in the u.k, channel 558)

It is about airline accidentover the years,and each episode goes through one accidnet, how it happened, what happened, and the aftermath

Last nights accident was about United 811. A 747 200 (OR 300 Cant recall) that lost its front right cargo door some where in the sea past HNL killing 9 people as there seats got ripped out the plane.

It looks like it will be a great show

Enjoy

I watched the UA811 accident last night. It's about time Sky got some more aviation-related programs on TV!

The swiss one was on 5, but i have not seen this series before.


It is about time they had some good shows like this.

They had Black Box a few years ago, but that did not really go into a lot of detail.
Where does the time go???

I saw that aswell - Very good. Next weeks is about the Swissair crash. I've seen them all before...but never mind.

My dad was a bit worried after watching it cos he has to fly today.

I popped into the middle of it last night - I couldn't believe the hassles the New Zealand couple had to go through to get the truth out of Boeing, NTSB & FAA.

Not to mention that it worried me that the airlines would lobby against such security measures.
