Flying blind in a fierce storm, the crew of Korean Air Flight 801 attempts to land, but there's a problem: they can't find the airport. The passenger jet ultimately crash-lands three miles short of its destination, and while some survive the impact, more than 200 people are killed. This is a story of an air disaster that easily could have been prevented, prompting to a damning investigation that pointed a finger at the Guam airport, the airline, and the FAA, and leading to changes to the airport and the training of Korean pilots.
