The on-scene investigation and wreckage layout reveals the airplane and engine were not to blame. So what caused the pilot to take her unusual, and deadly, route? Join the investigators of the NTSB Alaska Regional Office as they battle 1,000-foot fjords, dense forests, and very dynamic weather on a quest to solve the mystery of a tragic Cessna 207 accident.
