Not the highest production values but really interesting.
10 May 2015 | by See all my reviews

If you're an aviation buff like me you should love this series. It examines many well-know accidents and does so in a fact-based and compelling manner without being salacious at all.

Each episode begins with a reenactment of the disaster, after which the chain of events responsible is picked apart, followed lastly by the implications and recommendations of the accident investigation. I especially liked how false leads were chased down on the way to eventually arriving at a reasonable probable cause for each incident.

The accidents are heart-breaking, but how they led to improvements in aircraft and aviation rules is important and fascinating. As is remarked in one episode, "Every accident makes flying safer."
