Plane Crash Recreated explain and investigate the world's most infamous plane crashes - putting skilled pilots into state of the art simulators, and replicating the scenario.

As passengers, every time we board an aeroplane, we place our trust in the pilot, airline and the aircraft manufacturer and while flying remains the safest form of travel, accidents still happen.

Using survivor stories, expert interviews and black-box data, we will experience the final harrowing moments on board these notorious flights.

EPISODE 1 - JT610 / 737 Max
Lion Air Flight 610 was just 13 minutes into flight from Jakarta, Indonesia, when it plunged into the sea on 29 October 2018. This was the first fatal aviation accident for the 737 MAX, killing all 189 people on board. Just five months later, tragedy struck again on 10 March 2019, when the 737 Max serving Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302, crashed approximately six minutes after takeoff from Ethiopia, again killing all passengers and crew.

EPISODE 2 - US1549 / Sully
On January 15, 2009, US Airways Flight 1549 takes off from New York City's LaGuardia Airport when it collides with a flock of birds, destroying both engines.

EPISODE 3 - BD092 / Kegworth
A routine flight from London Heathrow to Belfast International Airport, ended in tragedy when British Midland Flight 92 crashed onto a motorway embankment near the town of Kegworth on 8th January 1989. An engine failure meant the crew would have to make what should have been a straight forward emergency landing.

EPISODE 4 - PK8303 / Pakistan
Pakistan International Airlines Flight 8303 was near the end of it's 90-minute journey from Lahore to Karachi when it dramatically crashed on 22 May 2020. While attempting a second approach after a failed landing, the Airbus A320 tragically collided with a densely populated residential area of Karachi only a few kilometers from the runway.

EPISODE 5 - UA232 / Sioux City
On 19 July 1989, United Airlines Flight 232 was making its regularly scheduled flight from Denver to Chicago when the DC-10 aircraft suffered a catastrophic failure to the tail-engine. The crew on board faced the impossible task of landing with a total loss of control.

EPISODE 6 - JAL123 / Japan
12 August, 1985 saw the deadliest single-aircraft accident in aviation history. Japan Airlines Flight 123 was a scheduled domestic passenger flight carrying 524 people from Tokyo to Osaka. Just 12 minutes into the flight, the Boeing 747 jumbo-jet suffered a fatal decompression that ripped off most of the tail. With a total loss of hydraulics, the crew were unable to control the aircraft which tragically crashed into a mountainside.

EPISODE 7 - AF447 / Air France
On 1 June 2009, Air France Flight 447, a scheduled passenger flight from Rio de Janeiro to Paris, dramatically vanished over the Atlantic Ocean. With little trace of the aircraft, an intense sea search commenced with the wreckage only being found nearly two years after the initial disappearance. Salvaged flight recorders revealed a tragic series of events that led to the aircraft plummeting into the ocean, killing everyone on board.

EPISODE 8 - TK1951 / Schiphol
Turkish Airlines Flight 1951 was less than a mile from the runway at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport when it catastrophically crashed on 25th February 2009. The aircraft broke into 3 pieces on impact, killing 9 passengers and crew and all three pilots.

EPISODE 9 - QF32 / A380
Just 4 minutes after take-off from Singapore Changi Airport, on 4 November 2010, Qantas Flight 32 suffered an uncontained failure in one of its engines. The failure was the first of its kind for the Airbus A380, the world's first double-deck jet airliner. Shrapnel from the engine damaged the fuel system and led to a series of failures, severely compromising the aircraft.

EPISODE 10 - BA38 / Heathrow
British Airways Flight 38 was on final approach into London Heathrow Airport when it crashed just short of the runway on 17 January 2008. What had been an uneventful passenger flight from Beijing, China, soon turned almost fatal just moments before landing when a lack of power to both engines caused the Boeing 777 to crash.
