Reprise.
17 September 2016 | by rmax304823See all my reviews

The focus of this episode isn't on a particular aircraft emergency but rather on the weather as it affects flying, and on the men and women who track weather systems and warn pilots.

But the bulk of the time is given over to repeats of three accidents that are more thoroughly described in other episodes.

The last of the three is by far the spookiest and has little to do with weather. A British Airlines 747 flies unwittingly into the ash plume of a far-off volcano. What happens to the airplane is worse than a trip through the Haunted House at Disneyland. I won't describe it.

I seem to remember this incident from the news. And, as I recall, another passenger jet of British origin deliberately flew over the volcano and into the ash cloud and suffered the same fate -- losing both engines until they were restarted at a much lower altitude. Yes, I remember the pilot described it to the passengers as "a spot of bother."
