Storyline

The pathologists investigate when a military helicopter crashes into a refugee detention center. Harry and Nikki actually witnessed the crash and were first on the scene but the case is complex since the center was Ministry of Defense property leased to the Home Office. The team is shocked at the conditions they find in the center and Harry, who has a close friend in the RAF, is shaken when a government Minister attributes the accident to pilot error.

Confrontation With Military Brass
20 March 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Harry and Nikki are on a little date. While returning, they hear a helicopter overhead. It crashes into a former RAF airfield, into buildings holding refugees, ready to be returned to their countries. Harry manages to get to the pilot who insists it wasn't his fault. He is taken into custody. The remainder of the episode is a series of unofficial evidence gathering efforts. Since the whole thing is immediately explained as pilot error, Harry takes it upon himself to put down this finding (or non-finding). I'm sure we are going to get into some pretty political stuff in Episode 2 of the 11th season.
