    Chicago Air Crash, Season 3 | Episode 9

    On 25 May, 1979, a McDonell Douglas - DC10 aircraft, packed with holiday and business travellers takes off from Chicago's O'Hare Airport in the U.S. Only 31 seconds after take-off at 3:04 PM, the plane slams into a trailer park community. Hundreds of witnesses claim to have seen an engine separate from the wing upon take-off, but the three-engine DC10 should have been able to fly using just one engine. The experienced crew was thoroughly trained and the plane received routine maintenance just weeks before. Investigators from the National Transportation Safety Board must attempt to rebuild the plane from tiny pieces of debris and perform a second-by-second examination to find out what caused Flight 191 to crash, claiming the lives of 273 people. The terrifying conclusion propels aviation maintenance regulations into the future.

    The Hunt Is On, Season 3 | Episode 2

    There are only a few days left of deer hunting season in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, and homesteaders Tony and Amelia need meat to get them through the cold winter. But Tony has never been deer hunting before and doesn't have the luxury of time to hone his methods. Tony is thrown right in to the hunt, and the pressure is on. In the woods of northern Georgia, Thorn has spent much of the winter preparing his school bus as a home for him and his new partner, Delia, to live in, but now they are running low on food. Deer season is almost over, and Delia is depending on him to bring home meat. Thorn must rise to the challenge, or they won't have any of the protein that they need to get them through the winter. Frontiersman Colbert has already taken advantage of the deer season in the swamps of Southern Georgia and has successfully killed a deer. But now he must process the deer meat, which is easier said than done. Colbert isn't getting any younger, and processing the deer proves to be more difficult and time consuming than he'd thought. There isn't much daylight left, so Colbert must work quickly to harvest the deer meat before it spoils and all his hard work has gone down the drain. Big game hunting season has ended in Utah, so hunter-gatherer Matt must turn his attention towards small game in order to get protein to survive. He's still assessing if his land in Utah can provide the resources he needs to live there through the colder months. If his attempts at small game don't result in meat, he'll need to take shelter for the night.
