Seconds from Disaster - Thursday 12 July


This documentary series investigates some of the worst man-made and natural disasters. Re-enactments, interviews, testimony, and CGI are used to analyse and deconstruct the sequence of events seconds before the disaster and the lessons that came out of the investigations. Tonight: Just nine minutes into a commercial flight from Florida to Atlanta, a fire starts in the hold, the pilot loses control and the plane crashes into the Florida Everglades, killing all 110 people on board. Incorrectly labelled and improperly packed oxygen canisters are to blame, and all it took was one to self-ignite.
