Air Disasters: SEASON 7: EPISODE 1

Miracle Escape

The Airbus A340 is a sophisticated plane with a glowing safety record. But in August 2005, one of these highly engineered jets had a hazardous landing during a thunderstorm. While landing, it skidded off the runway and put the lives of over 300 passengers and crew in peril. Was it simply bad weather that caused this disaster or was the plane itself at fault? Join the investigation that shone a light on the growing issue of runway overruns and led to life-saving safety procedures that, to this day, have only been put into place in a few cities.
