Episode 121: Aeroflot Flight 593

with No Comments


Many children who fly for the first time have dreamed of meeting the pilots of their flight. And sometimes, while a plane still sits on the ground, a pilot may even invite youngsters into the cockpit for a quick tour or photo. But on March 22, 1994, when a pilot opens the cockpit to visitors while inflight, things go from celebratory to disastrous in just moments. Join Shelly in this episode of Take to the Sky: The Air Disaster Podcast as she recounts the unprecedented events as they unfolded on Aeroflot 593, and the proceeding investigation that revealed the astonishing truth of what brought down the plane.
