Episode Summary

EDIT
Cruel Skies
AIRED:
Bad weather is more than just an inconvenience. It can be deadly. Lightning, hail, and excessive rain can all take down a plane. Disasters profiled include: Southern Airways 242 in 1977 ('Southern Storm'), Delta 191 in 1985 ('Invisible Killer'), American Airlines 1420 in 1999 ('Racing the Storm'), and British Airways 9 in 1982 ('Falling From the Sky'). These disasters led to changes in the types of radar used to detect weather and in the frequency weather reports are given to air traffic controllers.moreless
