It’s your chance to win your own copy of this thrilling documentary series!
We here at Rumsey’s are excited to announce that Terror in the Skies will be arriving on DVD in the UK on the 3rd October!
Here’s the official text to whet your appetite:
‘Featuring gut-wrenching stories of imminent disaster told by survivors, witnesses and air accident investigators, Terror in the Skies is a candid look at pilot errors, technical failures, near misses and emergency landings across the world’s crowded airways. Originally broadcast on Channel 4, it prepares for take-off for the first time on UK DVD courtesy of Simply Media.
Everyone knows that air travel is statistically the safest form of transport, but when things go wrong, disaster looms. Aeronautical engineer Professor Brendan Walker celebrates the unsung heroes who keep us airborne – but warns that modern aviation is too technologically complex to be entirely safe.
Plane crashes are mercifully rare – but in today’s congested skies, near misses and narrow escapes are anything but. Every day around the world over 100,000 passenger planes take to the air, each flight depending on the careful actions of thousands, from assembly line workers to maintenance staff, pilots, cabin crew and air traffic controllers.
Combining user-generated content, cabin and control tower audio recordings and archive news footage – including Captain Chesley Sullenberger’s heroic 2009 emergency landing of a passenger jet on the Hudson in central Manhattan – this four-part series offers a unique insight into these terrifying events and investigates all the perils and precautions from take-off to landing. Terror in the Skies makes its arrival on DVD on 3 October 2016.’
