Terrorism, bad weather, negligence, passenger delay.. everything odd was against that day

where is the very contextually inappropriate happy music?

I remember this episode, I think nobody survived on the KLM airliner. The pilot of the KLM plane was actually a famous pilot for his small country. He was very irritated for how long he was waiting. I think the Pan Am’s majority of passengers survived as only the top of their aircraft was torn off.

If you’re watching this before flying for some god awful reason, don’t be afraid. You’ll be okay.

Can you imagine being a passenger on the Pan Am plane and seeing another plane speeding towards you? To know you're about to die and not being able to do anything about it is so tragic and heartbreaking. So much loss of life in an instant.. I wouldn't be surprised if that airport is haunted.

Remember that crash as if it were yesterday, My brother met one of the few survivors (PanAm flight attendant). I actually visited Tenerife and saw the site of the crash (older airport).

Everyone on the KLM flight died and there were 61 survivors from the Pan Am flight. The KLM captain thought he had clearance to take off which he thought was issued earlier when it really wasn't. There was also radio interference and the crew along with the ATC used improper phrasing like "We're taking off" and "okay."

I was shocked by what the pilot of the KLM aircraft did, if he had been patient with the air traffic controller, if he had waited for clearance to takeoff, this accident would not have happened.

it's improtant to remember that even though the klm captain was impatient and made a huge was those terrorist dipshits placing the bomb that forced both of these planes to redirect to this small airport

The ATC guys ONLY speak clearly during Re-enactments.

to this day every accident board outside of the one from KLM lays MOST of the blame for this accident on the KLM pilot.

A note of trivia about this crash: the Pan Am 747 was the very first 747 to go into service in 1969.

Worst of the 20th & hope it holds that way thru the 21st

Boy, that first officer must have some horrible nightmares....

Excellent animation at the end illustrating the crash. There is another, very similar one (the Mayday series IIRC) but I think this one might just be the best.
