Air Crash InvestigationThursday 20:00 CAT


Season 16

Making a routine journey from Berlin, Crossair Flight #3597 is on its final approach to Zurich. It is one of the last planes scheduled to land. But just minutes before landing the pilots cannot find the runway. They decide to abort the maneuver and apply full power to all four engines in order to get their jet to climb.

But they would only solve the riddle of Crossair Flight 3597 by digging into the past.
