Episode Summary

Shockwave - 27
A pilot is out of fuel, one of the wheels on his landing gear is stuck and he's running out of time. If he tries to land with one wheel up the plane will crash and pilot will almost certainly die. One man in the ground crew puts his life on the line in a daring rescue attempt. He jumps in the back of a pickup truck and is going to try to reach up and pull the stuck wheel down by hand. Terror under the big top. A 75 hundred pound African Elephant erupts in rage and goes on a rampage. The angry elephant tramples his trainers then heads out of the tent and on to the streets of Honolulu, Hawaii. The terrified crowd runs for cover as the elephant breaks free. One of the worlds greatest helicopter pilots is putting on a spectacular display when suddenly virtuoso Denns Kenyon and his tiny two seat aircraft take a deadly plunge at a Utah air-park. A bus loaded with passengers has gone over the side of a bridge and splashed into the river. A heavy-duty crane is brought in to pull the bus out of the water. As part of the bus begins to surface from the murky depths, disaster strikes again. The crane begins to sway and then topples into the river. It's one of the most prestigious speed boat races in the world, The British Grand Prix, and we've got a camera in the cockpit. The hometown favorites are racing across the water at close to 200 miles an hour when disaster strikes. Their boat King of Shaves, flips and then explodes into pieces. The cockpit catches the carnage as to two pilots plunge and scramble to escape.moreless
