Combining rare archival footage with stunningly realistic recreations, the series has an investigative approach to the disasters, examining events leading to the crashes and establishing answers to the question of what went wrong. Featuring interviews with world-renowned aviation experts and computer graphic imagery, each story unfolds from moment to moment with the drama of a high-tech thriller. Eyewitness and survivor interviews are interwoven with the investigation to add immediacy and emotional impact to the stories behind some of the worst disasters in aviation history.
