    Rolls Royce Silver Shadow, Season 1 | Episode 3

    In this episode of Supercar Megabuild, Engineers Ralph Hosier and Ranen Rudra face what seems an impossible task set by pop star client Shane Lynch: take his refined, elegant, 1979 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow, and turn it into an all out, bad boy styled drift machine. This will be the ultimate challenge even for the experienced engineers - they've never done a drift car before and certainly not one based on a prestige brand like Rolls Royce. It's a journey that will take them to the home of drifting, Japan, where they'll learn the skills and mechanics of this motorsport from the best in the business. The Rolls Royce they have been given by their mentor Afzal Kahn is owned by pop star Shane Lynch, and as part of the package they'll need to give the car a complete restyling package, as well as going back to the drawing board with the mechanics of the vehicle. In a spectacular finale the Rolls will be handed over to Shane at an international drifting contest in Ireland - will the client like the car, and more importantly, will it be able to go sideways round the track, drifting and doing the job it was never designed to do?!

The pilots shut it down but soon discover they have a much more serious problem on their hands. The plane is in a steep right bank, and the pilots are unable to restore its flight path. The DC-10 has suffered a complete failure of all hydraulic systems, and the pilots have no way to maneuver the plane other than by alternating the power to the two remaining engines. The pilots manage to fly the crippled plane to the nearest airport but, unable to configure the wings for a normal landing, they have no choice but to keep the engines at nearly full power. After a crash that claims 111 of the 296 people on board, it's up to investigators to figure out how a foolproof system failed.

    9/11: The Plane That Hit The Pentagon

    ON SEPTEMBER 11, 2001, one hundred and eighty-four innocent people lost their lives at the Pentagon. It is a fact that is fading from our collective memory. Today, its not uncommon to find people who dont know that the Pentagon was even a target - let alone the huge number of casualties. Though they helped define a generation, the individual acts of bravery and heroism that took place at the Pentagon are still relatively unknown. Even less widely known is that within an hour of the first attack, officials on the ground at the Pentagon received word that another hijacked flight was headed their way. For some evacuation was not an option. On the 15th Anniversary of the attack, survivors and first responders many for the first time share their raw and vivid recollections of the day that forever changed the world.

And its causing havoc. The ER unit at the United Medical Center treats up to 80 psychotic patients high on PCP each month. Staff have to tie patients down. PCP is an anesthetic and a hallucinogen. Chronic abuse of PCP causes permanent brain damage. As user Charisma explains, on the streets its sold as a single menthol cigarette soaked in the liquid, called a dipper. Washington dealers receive PCP in gallon quantities directly from suppliers in California. Mr Amigo an ex-trafficker made his PCP fortune cutting out the middle men. Some DC sex workers are crazy for the drug. For them its a super charged aphrodisiac. Viola smokes PCP before she hits the streets to turn tricks. DEA Tactical Units train in safe ways to take down PCP kitchens that are toxic, explosive and ruthlessly defended. The precursor chemicals are so noxious the clean up teams wear respirators and Class A chemical suits that protect against chemical burns, and vapors. CHIEF CATHY LANIER heads the Washington DC Metropolitan Police Department and she is committed to crushing the PCP trade. "Weve had parents murder children.
