Episode 149: The 1977 Tenerife Airport Disaster

with No Comments


It was the deadliest disaster of all time – and it never should have happened. In our next-to-final regular episode of Take to the Sky: The Air Disaster Podcast, Shelly walks us through the fateful events of March 27, 1977, that led to two 747 passenger planes, Pan Am 1736 and KLM 4508, being on the same runway at the same time - and how aviation safety was never the same because of this mega disaster.
