Panic at 30,000 Feet

Channel 5 (3 x 60 mins)

This series explores what happens when flights lose control.

A packed passenger jet bursting into flames just moments from take-off. The panicking pilots who caused a catastrophic crash. The family fun flight that ended in disaster when a mid-air collision left them free falling through burning debris.

Across these stories and many more, footage captured by passengers on board, first-hand accounts from lucky survivors and expert analysis on the extraordinary situations that led to these eye-popping events all combine to tell the story of extreme flights - out of control!
