    Singapore Airlines Flight 006

    As a typhoon crawled toward Taiwan, Singapore Airlines Flight 006 began its taxi toward the runway, and the flight crew was prepared for a slippery but safe departure toward calmer skies en route to Los Angeles. Before the plane was airborne, a frightening observation from the cockpit threatened the lives of every person on board. In this week's episode of Take to the Sky: The Air Disaster Podcast, Stephanie walks us through the events and decisions that contributed to the first fatal flight in the airline's history and questioned how the plane ended up in a perilous position.

    Korean Air Lines Flight 007 Part 1

    In the early morning hours of September 1, 1983, Korean Air Lines Flight 007 crashed into the North Pacific Ocean off Sakhalin Island. The cause of the crash quickly becomes clear to the world: a Soviet fighter jet has astonishingly shot down a civilian passenger jet, mistaking it for an enemy spy plane. Join Shelly for this two-part episode as we explore how it took ten years and the end of the Cold War before investigators found out the whole truth.

In this episode of Take to the Sky: the Air Disaster Podcast, Stephanie shares the story of how this crash resulted in an investigation that spanned two decades and is remembered as "a Canadian tragedy." While the sequence of events and series of missteps may shock you, we know it's a story and legacy you won't soon forget.

    Swissair Flight 111

    Swissair Flight 111

    By the time Swissair Flight 111 reached its cruising altitude in the evening hours of September 2, 1998, there was no reason to expect anything other than a safe flight. Less than an hour after takeoff, a strange smell in the cockpit indicated something was wrong- and it would take more than four years before the world would know exactly what that was. In this week's episode of Take to the Sky: the Air Disaster Podcast, Stephanie walks us through what happened and what we learned from a disaster whose legacy shaped aviation as we know it today.
