Brand New Air Crash Investigation 10th Sept

Tue Sep 04, 2007 6:07 am

For anyone with SKY TV in the UK or Europe National Geographic are showing a new series of Air Crah Investigation from 9pm 10th September .

9pm Part 1 of 5 ''Ghost Plane'' Examine the startling events of Helios flight 522.

10pm Part 2 of 5 ''Flight 21 is missing'' In April 1996 a military jet carrying the US commerce secretary Ron Browne crashed in Croatia.

I presume part 3 and 4 will be shown the following week and I dont know what accidents they will be about. Does anyone know???

All I could find was this link but its the older ones. Some good info and stats though and interactive map.

Since it is made in Canada I have seen this season, it is very good! Here it is called Mayday and is shown on Discovery. I really like "Ghost Flight" about the Helios plane that lost oxygen.

You'll definetely enjoy this season!!!

If you click on "What's On" and click on the particular date on the calendar you can see what is coming up during the next few weeks
On 17 Sept they are showing 6 Mile plunge (China Airlines 006) and Desperate Dive (Flash Airlines 604)
On 24 Sept they are showing Collision over L.A. (AeroMexico 498)
Who...me??

Yes Im very interested in seeing this also . The Greek connection and also the day it happened my cousin had come in from Athens and we were on a cruise ship. On the cruise ship were a group of Greeks from Cyprus and one woman knew some of the passengers. Also my company at that time used Helios alot for groups to Cyprus. Weird thing is was that on 9/11 I was also on a cruise ship .

It's great showing on free tv here in Aussie at the moment and is always on Nat Geo.

Tomorrow night is the Ghost Plane episode, looks interesting to say the least.

It's definately one of the best shows on National geographic!! One of my friends in the UK said they get Discovery wings, or aviation or something like that. Does anyone know if we will ever get that here in SA? I really hope so!

One of the few programmes i genuinely look forward to watching on TV these days, they do it really well, it's gripping and tense at times. Looking forward to the news series, the previous series was excellent.

Does the show hits the screens here in the Middle East sooner than Europe. I already saw Helios, the US military and the Flash episodes last month on NGC.

Discovery Wings has been replaced by Discovery Turbo here in the UK. Now much more motoring than aviation based content, sadly.

Excellent news, I love this programme, even watching the repeats. Far better than other investigative documentaries, such as "Seconds from disaster" which I find dramatizes events to much and repeats sentences throughout the programme.

On a side note, does anyone remember a series called "Black Box"? If so, is this ever repeated, or available on DVD at all?

Many thanks
Craig

Was a good first program to the new series. Very sad that such a simple switch killed all those people. I hope they learn from their mistakes . I wonder if the families will ever get justice !!! They have launched lawsuits against Helios / Boeing and the Cypriot Aviation authority.

Anyone know when these will be on in the US? (as Air Emergency) What gets me is that the show itsn't even listed on http://channel.nationalgeographic.com/channel/programs/ Is the US not airing this show anymore? Will it be on Discovery Times, or some other channel? Any information relating to the US airing of the 5th season would be great, thanks!

Yea, I'm one of the editors on Wikipedia that have been monitoring this article and working with the people who keep changing it around. The problem is that on Wikipedia we strive to use reliable sources, and the website they are getting the season 5 info from is a blog type of website (http://www.freewebs.com/aircrashmayday/fullepisodes.htm) which is not fully verifiable. So don't depend on that article for season 5 information. Reguarding any episodes that haven't been aired yet, it's just about the same as a rumor started on this forum. It may be true, but we'll never know until it's public.

I love this series. I know tomorrow nights episdode on 7 in Australia is the Valujet DC9 crash in the Evergaldes which is not listed at all on Wikipedia. Guess as it has been discussed Wikipedia is not the most reliable of sources. Intresting to see Korean Air gets a mention twice in season 5. If that is true then their past has come back to haunt them.

Episodes I would like to see for the next season maybe would be

Singapore Airlines 744 accident at Taipei
Garuda DC10 accident at Fukuoka
Mandarin MD11 crash at Hong Kong
Qantas 744 Bangkok runway overrun.
Lufthansa 742 accident in Nairobi
South African 742 crash into the Indian Ocean
Malaysia Airlines F50 crash in Borneo

It is if reliable sources are provided (at the bottom of the article). Wikipedia is not meant to be an original source of information...it's a collection of information that is properly cited. It's not a theory paper, it's a research paper, basically, only much bigger!

From IMDB I can see that "Invisible Killer: Delta Flight 191" is probably going to be the first episode in season 5.
