frightening, unbelievable
1 September 2007 | by existentializerSee all my reviews

Hollywood doesn't have writers good enough to come up with a scenario like the Aeroflot 593 disaster, nor could they convince the audience such horror could visit innocent people--but this is a true story, one far stranger than fiction.

I have learned from this series that "planes never crash due to one single cause--there are always two or more causes of any plan crash." The terrifying story of Aeroflot 593 demonstrates how little things can add up to big trouble, especially when a fifteen year-old is seated in the captain's chair.

There is a sliver lining here: you will learn a whole lot about how to fly an Airbus A310 if you watch this episode. Might come in handy; watching this series has frightened me into believing I am doomed to die a horrifying death while desperately sucking the last wisps of pure, calming oxygen from the yellow cup of my oxygen mask, strapped tighter than a snare drum to my violently vibrating seat, white knuckled and frozen in agonizingly tense anticipation of the aircraft finally slamming into a mountainside...or the surface of the ocean...or a suburban neighborhood, mercifully ending this plummeting nightmare and reducing me to a height that no orthopedic insert can improve. But I digress.

Scary, freaky, informative and well re-created (in the absence of a sexual alternative) this is probably as good a way to squander 45 minutes of your remaining life on Earth as I can think of. Good stuff!
