An amazing Documentary Drama
3 April 2013 | by See all my reviews

It is an amazing Documentary that well and simple explanations to plane crashes. It explains to even to the regular joe. The CGI varies from episode to episode (PS: The Grand Canyon's one was crap). Although there episode release schedule was out the window during Season 10 and 12 (It took 6 months to release an episode). I prefer the narrator in the British/Pacific version rather then the narrator in the Canadian version. The reenactments are are believable although I wish the script writers would stick to the Black box recordings rather then trying to script it (its really noticeable in episodes where there aren't black boxes recordings to fall on) And it is a bit boring watching the pilots doing preflight checklists. And on a final note I wish they covered more plane crashes.
