On March 27th, 1977 the worse disaster in aviation history took place. In an attempt to take off in a thick fog, a 747 collides with another on the runway in Tenerife. The fiery explosion kills 583 people leaving just 70 survivors. By using forensic re-creations and transcripts of the recorded cockpit control tower conversations, this programme investigates exactly what went wrong.

3:08 He wasn’t the only surviving officer. He was just the only one still alive when this was filmed. Captain Victor Grubbs died in 1995, and Flight Engineer George Warns died in 1991

1:35 "Hydraulic failure causes an engine to be torn away from the body of the plane"
if i remember well, it was a failure of one of the screws that hold the engine in place, cause it to be torn away from the wing and then causing hydraulic failure and loss of lift on the left wing because of damage ! 1:57 and that was Zulu, an 767 !

"When a hydraulic failure causes the engine to be torn from the plane" (about 2 mins in). This is backward! The engine breaking away from the plane damaged the hydraulics.

So if the KLM hadn't caught on fire after crash landing back on the runway, there would've been survivors?

When it comes to aviation, nobody is flying the plane.

1:17 is from a different plane, NOT a 747-100 or -200... :S

Do major arlines and jumbo jets still fly to tenerife? I only see things like eayjet 737s and charter flights

@michaeljehn Even more tacky is that many of the photographs used are from the Nairobi Lufthansa 747 crash, not Tenerife. It really makes me angry that programme makers continue to make these stupid errors, instead of doing a little bit of research.

also hydraulic failure on that DC-10 was FROM the engine coming off... not the cause of it coming off

uhhh, a number of those "coincidences" were DIRECTLY caused by the preceeding event, and the stuff with the radio is a fact of the way radio transmision works.

This show was made in the US (I think, I havent seen this particular documentary series), and most shows made there don't realy care about the differances between European Spanish and Latin American Spanish (In terms of language, culture and people). Mostly because there are way more latin american spanish people than european spanish people in the US.
