Anyone catch this show yet? It's on the National Geographic Channel (iO channel 162) every Tuesday at 8pm EST. Each week the recreate major air crashes with stunning special effects and acting.

The two episode I've seen so far were of ASA flight 529 and American flight 965. Anyone who can, watch it!

I saw the ASA 529 on today. I thought it was amazing that everybody survived the initial impact the only person who didn't walk away from the plane was the captain (a hero in his own), sucks for the fire, though.

Also, why wouldn't the First officer have just popped the escape hatch on the roof of the cockpit? Did the Brasilia not have one then?
