Thanks very much CD for bringing that to our attention. We will definitely have to check that out. Do you know if the author Andrew Weir (Tombstone Imperative,etc.) is involved in this effort?

I have no idea in Andrew is involved...

It's a series that cover a number of accidents:
* American 1420;
* Swissair 111;
* United 811;
* Air Transat;
* AeroPeru 603; and
* Alaska 261.

Mayday - Investigate the stories behind major air crashes with a focus on aspects of air safety.

CD I managed to miss this documentary and was wondering if you or anyone else that reads the board have seen it? If so what was it like? Thanks.
