    Aircraft Carrier Explosion, Season 3 | Episode 4

    "The fire was everywhere and the thought going through your mind is to just escape". This chilling recap from survivor Dave Dollarhide, a pilot on the USS Forrestal, details one of the most famous disasters in U.S. military history. During the Vietnam War on 29 July, 1967, Dollarhide was one of six Skyhawk pilots on deck, preparing for an airborne attack. However, the danger that day did not come from enemy fire, but from a blazing inferno on the ship itself. At 10:51 AM, as pilots prepare for take off, a sudden explosion occurs, igniting a fire that spread flames across the deck and into the heart of the ship below. Initial explosions wipe out many of the fire-fighters, leaving untrained crew members to quell the conflagration. Some 17 hours later, the fire is out and 134 men are dead. What caused the explosions that led to the deaths of these men? Footage of the fire, eye-witness testimony and investigator experiments help answer this key question.

    Asian Tsunami, Season 3 | Episode 6

    On 26 December, 2004, the largest earthquake in 40 years strikes deep beneath the Indian Ocean. Lasting eight minutes and stretching a record 1,600 kilometres in length, the earthquake's massive strength surpasses measurement on the Richter scale. Just after 8:15 AM, billions of tonnes of water speed towards land with a force equivalent to more than 30,000 Hiroshima bombs. Within minutes, the terrifying wall of water makes landfall, engulfing entire towns in its path. Deadly currents and dangerous debris tear buildings apart, as people across South Asia fight for survival. Ultimately claiming the lives of more than 250,000 people, it is the most devastating tsunami in recorded history and scientists are puzzled by the extraordinary size and savagery of the waves. Tsunami experts must analyze the geologic episode, looking for clues behind the tsunami's overwhelming force. Their findings re-define tsunami prediction and reveal that tsunamis may pose a greater threat than previously realized.

    Tornado Outbreak, Season 3 | Episode 10

    On 3 April, 1974, the United States' 'Tornado Alley' region experiences the full force of Mother Nature's raw power when a single storm system causes an astonishing 148 tornadoes to touch down in thirteen states in just one day. Several of these storms are F-5 strength, the strongest storms on Earth with winds up to 511 kilometres per hour. The tornadoes rip through quiet rural communities and bustling towns, leaving paths of destruction in their wake. When the weather finally clears, 330 people are dead and more than 5,400 people are injured, causing more than US $660 million in damage. Top meteorologists from around the country must work together to identify how all of these tornadoes could have developed in hopes of creating better warning systems. What they find revolutionizes understanding of a tornado's structure and modernizes tornado warning procedures.
