Air Disasters: SEASON 6: EPISODE 2

Attack Over Baghdad

November 22, 2003. War-torn Iraq. A DHL Airbus A300 carrying letters home from American soldiers departs from Baghdad International Airport. The crew is unaware that just a few miles away, a terrorist group has its own plans for the aircraft, involving a surface-to-air missile. This is the crippling attack on the cargo carrier, captured through rarely seen footage, taken by a passing military helicopter and on the ground by one of the terrorists responsible for the attack.
