More About This episode

Dense jungles, steep learning curves, and big personalities cause turbulence and tension during two pressure-filled aircraft deliveries. Jump into the cockpit with owner Cory Bengtzen and co-pilot Kerry McCauley as they try to find their feet as a team while flying over the Amazon rainforest. Then follow pilot Randy McGehee on a U.N. relief mission to war-ravaged South Sudan, aboard a 1998 Dornier. It's a plane Randy's never flown, and he has just 48 hours to master it before embarking on the 6,000-mile journey.
