An exceptional TV show
20 April 2008 | by fbachianSee all my reviews

I'm an aviation enthusiast and a big fan of this show, presented in Brazil by National Geographic and called "Mayday Desastres Aéreos" (something like "Mayday Air Disasters)".

It's presented in a very easy way to understand so everybody can watch and enjoy it.

One my my favorite episodes is the "Blow Out", that's the first episode of the second season. It's really amazing the pilot survived.

The computer graphics is a must and recreates the aircraft models and situations with accuracy.

The actors dramatization are not bad, but it seems to be overused sometimes.
