Flying is a state-of-the-art cutting edge industry: The planes are better designed, the pilots are better trained and the computers are more intelligent. It should be safer than ever before… but still things go wrong.

From the unrivalled experts in ‘disaster TV’, Terror in the Skies brings the genre bang up-to-date. We’ll explore the new, 21st century reasons that there are so many frightening near-misses. From bored and distracted pilots, as automated technology puts them in the back seat, to our desire to fly anywhere at any time for rock-bottom prices, regardless of the weather - this is the scary reality of modern day flying.
