A superb series, w/stories too amazing to be made up.
29 November 2008 | by (S. Lake Tahoe, CA) – See all my reviews

This is a great show which besides some of the mediocre re-enacting, is almost perfectly presented. I only have a couple real complaints about it. If anything I wish that "ACI" covered even more about the investigations as they can sometimes go on for years. I would think that being a NTSB investigator would be an amazing job although it's sad it has to come to that. It must be very rewarding for those trying to figure out what went wrong & explaining to those who both survived, & to those that have lost loved ones exactly what happened. This is one of those shows that has stories that are absolutely astounding that cannot be made up, otherwise you wouldn't believe it. (The pilot outside, Air France hostages, Hawaiian airlines losing their top, the mid-air collision etc.) I would hate to wish for more accidents to happen, but unfortunately that is the only way for us to learn about them and make them safer. I know it's all about money, but why every system doesn't have at least 1 redundancy (2 for the major systems such as the hydraulics) built in, is beyond me. You can't put a price on these people yet we do it every day. Anyway love this show & for anybody trying to expand their knowledge as well as being entertained, this is the show for you.
