Air Disasters: SEASON 6: EPISODE 6

Mistaken Identity

A passing civilian airliner or an attacking Iranian fighter jet? That is the question facing Capt. Rogers after his Navy cruiser, stationed in the Persian Gulf, picks up the track of an incoming plane. All attempts to contact the aircraft are unsuccessful. The rules of engagement are clear: anything approaching their vessel is to be considered a threat. But what if it's a friend and not a foe? Witness the crew's intense seven-minute race for answers, the decision they're forced to make, and the major impact it will have on the world.
