Alternate title: "All Engines Failed" British Airways Flight 009, sometimes referred to as the Jakarta incident, was a scheduled British Airways flight from London Heathrow to Auckland, with stops in Bombay, Madras, Kuala Lumpur, Perth and Melbourne. On 24 June 1982, the route was being flown by City of Edinburgh, a 747-200 registered G-BDXH, when it flew into a cloud of dust and ash thrown up by the eruption of Mount Galunggung, and all four engines failed. The aircraft was able to glide far enough to exit the ash cloud, and three of the engines were restarted, allowing the flight to divert to Jakarta and perform a safe landing.

It is an amazing documentary series that gives an insight on airplane accidents. Thoroughly presented offers an opportunity to learn about crashes that took place recently and about the preventative measure taken since to avoid similar tragedies. I recommended for those who can take it but should be avoided by those with a fear of flight...
I don't have anything to add on the comments of the latter two. Watching this show is an eye-opening experience for everyone whether you're interested in aviation or not. Very emotional documentary series; so emotional that few episodes almost made me cry. I will give 10 points to this show - I don't have to hesitate.
One of the best documentary series. The mixture of eye witness accounts, original footage and re-enacment makes this a thrill to watch. Also this is highly informative because of the detailed explanations why those accidents happened.
