s9e2 Terror in San Francisco
March 12, 2017
It's July 6th, 2013, and Asiana Airlines Flight 214 nears the end of an overnight trip from Seoul to San Francisco. It's a perfect day for flying, but as the pilots prepare for landing, something goes horribly wrong. The aircraft comes in too low and slams into the seawall at the edge of the runway before careening across the tarmac. Eyewitness videos capture the dramatic scene as hundreds of passengers appear from the smoking fuselage. Join the investigation as air safety experts attempt to figure out what exactly doomed the Boeing 777.
