DESCRIPTION:
(from Smithsonian's press release, September 2013) TERROR IN THE SKIES, a gripping new series that investigates terrifying near-disasters in air travel using user generated content (UGC) from passengers and eyewitnesses, premieres Sunday, September 29 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Smithsonian Channel. Rapid growth in global air travel has put increasing strains on the aviation industry, and as more people take to the skies, they're taking phones and camcorders with them. And in moments of crisis, they are capturing it all on video. TERROR IN THE SKIES gives unique insight into these alarming events. The series uncovers gut-wrenching stories of imminent disaster, told by survivors, witnesses and air-accident investigators. By most measures, air travel has never been safer. But UGC reveals serious concerns, including pilots asleep in the cockpit and terrifying close calls caused by careless maintenance errors. TERROR IN THE SKIES uses these amateur videos as a new forensic tool - combined with genuine air traffic audio recordings, expert analysis and detailed CGI deconstructions - to examine what happened in each incident and how airlines and the industry have responded.
