Exclusive for Podcrashers:

It's three days after Christmas in 2014 and AirAsia 8501 is over the Java Sea when its two pilots begin getting warnings from the plane's highly automated flight system. At first, things go routinely as the crew works to resolve the warnings. But after the fourth warning, the pilots are now in fight for control of the plane, which is crashing toward the sea with 155 passengers onboard. Join Shelly for this Patreon-exclusive episode where we cover the investigation that revealed the erroneous error and sequence of events that put the plane on a path toward disaster.
