'The Plane Crash' on TV in UK, tonight
« on: October 11, 2012, 01:58:14 pm »
Interesting show on UK tv tonight

Scientists, pilots and aviation experts participate in a staged aeroplane crash in a remote area of Mexican desert, hoping the exercise will reveal more about what happens to aircraft and their occupants during forced emergency landings. Pilot James `JimBob' Slocum will put a Boeing 727 passenger jet on a crash course, parachuting out minutes before impact - with former US Navy pilot Leland `Chip' Shanle then taking charge of the craft via remote control from a chase plane. After the crash, experts will analyse the site, along with data collected from cameras, instruments and hi-tech crash test dummies, to learn more about what happens when aeroplanes are forced out of the sky
