Episode 31: American Eagle Flight 4184

with No Comments


American Eagle Flight 4184 was just any other short-haul flight over the Midwest—until it plummeted into a soybean field in Roselawn, Indiana, on Halloween 1994. Listen to the newest episode of Take to the Sky: The Air Disaster Podcast as Shelly recounts the flight's fall from the sky, a crash that led to pilots advocating for changes in aviation safety and led to changes in how airlines respond to victims’ families in the wake of aviation disasters.

Show Notes:

Shelly shares the hilarious story of a man in the UK who draws silly pictures of people's pets for charity. So naturally, Shelly and Stephanie had to share pet pictures of their own pets- meet Shelly's cats Rascal and Nash and Stephanie's guinea pigs Sydney and Fernando (including Stephanie's terrible attempts to draw them both).

We also talk about Halloween; if you are looking for a plague doctor mask, Stephanie recommends this gem from Amazon.
