One of the best!
4 February 1999 | by (Shawnee, OK) – See all my reviews

Out of all the newer disaster documentaries, this oldie is still great. It shows fantastic footage of the TEXAS CITY explosion, Hurricane Camille, Le Mans & Indy deadly crashes, and more. Besides the normal footage we learn how these disasters could have been possibly stopped.
