More About This episode

Cory Bengtzen walked away from a lucrative car dealership to embark on a risky new career path: a used airplane delivery business. So far, it's beginning to look like a crash and burn endeavor. On the company's inaugural missions, two trans-global "ferry flights" over unforgiving waters, he and his team of daring cowboy pilots encounter wild weather, dangerous airstrips, and a series of mechanical failures. Enter the cockpit and see if this new business will finally take off, or if Cory's on a disaster collision course.
