Pancaking.

This episode continues to provide the quality of the series as a whole. A Turkish Airlines flight is approaching an airport in Holland when it simply drops out of the sky near the runway, killing nine people.

Nothing is sensationalized. The narration is sensibly descriptive and carries no drama in itself. The drama lies in the events we see. First the crash, then the investigation, then the solution. It's all rather like a detective story.

I'm amazed at the deductive ability of the investigators. I'll give one example. Okay, the airplane drops flat and breaks up into three sections, with the engines separate from the wings. It looks as if the engines had suddenly quit. But did they? No, it's not likely. And how do the investigators reach this tentative conclusion? Because both engines were located forward of the other debris, which suggests they were still producing thrust at the time of impact.

A thorough examination of the circumstances reveals a malfunctioning altimeter and a crew too busy with overdue landing checks to notice what was happening to the airplane until it was too late to recover from the stall.
