    The Plane That Vanished, Season 7 | Episode 7

    January 1st, 2007 - After taking off from Indonesia's Suribaya airport, Adam Air Flight 574 settles in for the two-hour trip to Manado. The Boeing 737 is loaded with New Year's travelers taking advantage of the country's recent discount travel boom. But somewhere over the Java Sea, the plane hits turbulence, and air traffic controllers notice the jet is hundreds of miles off course…and headed for a major storm. Air traffic controllers get in touch with the lost plane - and try guiding it back on course. But the jet's navigational systems aren't working. And the bad weather is closing in. The crew struggle to find their way - when suddenly, flight 574 disappears from radar. Rescue teams search a section of the sea the size of Ireland - but it's a fisherman who finds the first piece of wreckage. There's no hope of survivors - 102 people are killed. After months of arguing over who will pay for the salvage operation, investigators eventually retrieve the aircraft's data and voice recorders. The rest of the wreckage is left behind. When they study the black boxes, investigators realize that the crew made a series of small mistakes that doomed their plane. When they took manual control of their jet, they were betrayed by a poor understanding of their automation systems - and flew the aircraft into the sea. But pushing further, investigators find that Adam Air did not properly maintain their jets. Problems with the navigational system were well known - but never fixed. Pilots also received poor training when it came to dealing with mechanical problems. Investigators conclude that the country's entire fleet of discount carriers - not just Adam Air -- was riddled with safety issues. The investigation eventually brings about Adam Air's suspension, and large-scale reforms to Indonesia's airline industry.
