    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.
