    Impossible Pitch

    West Air Sweden Flight 294 is on a late-night postal run over the border of Norway and Sweden. Suddenly, the captain discovers his plane is in a steep climb. He pushes the nose down, unaware that he is actually sending his cargo jet speeding towards the ground. It slams into the Earth at almost 600 miles an hour. Investigators soon reach a troubling conclusion: the plane was never pitching up in the first place. But they still don't understand why the failure of a single instrument led to such a sudden and catastrophic crash.

    Taxiway Turmoil

    On a foggy night at Detroit Airport, a DC-9 carrying forty passengers finds itself on the wrong end of an active runway. At the same moment—and on the same taxiway, a 727 is cleared for takeoff. The result is a horrifying collision that kills eight people. Investigators are tasked to find out exactly how the DC-9 got lost and what role the pilots, the weather, and traffic control had to do with it. What they discover is a combination of issues, including poor signage, poor visibility, and poor communication in the cockpit.

    Atlantic Ditching

    The 2009 crash of Cougar Flight 91 off the coast of Newfoundland stunned the aviation world, not simply because one of the most advanced helicopters in the world failed, but because one of the disaster’s passengers survived. We examine the doomed flight from St. John’s to an offshore drilling platform, and follow investigators as they piece together clues that ultimately reveal a fatal flaw in the state-of-the-art Sikorsky S-92’s design. Then we reveal how one passenger’s previous experience in a cold sea accident ultimately saved his life.
