Revealing the dark truth that aviation safety improves one crash at a time, Mayday: Disaster investigates legendary aviation disasters to find out what went wrong and why. Stories include: after a routine fueling stop in Newfoundland, a US military charter flight crashes; an Airbus careens off the tarmac at the notorious Congonhas Airport in Sao Paolo; and in 1958, a crash in Munich kills seven members of the Manchester United football team. Based on cockpit voice recordings, accident reports, and eyewitness accounts, every episode also features interviews, state-of-the-art CGI, and gripping re-enactments.
