There is nothing more luxurious than a flight on a private plane—unless your flight doesn't take off at all. In this week's episode of Take to the Sky: The Air Disaster Podcast, Stephanie takes us through the decisions and challenges that contributed to the crash of an Arizin Ventures Gulfstream G-IV at Hanscom Field near Boston, Massachusetts. In a situation involving high-profile passengers on a plane with a great safety record, was there anything that could have stopped the crash from happening? The answer may surprise you as much as it surprised us!
Stephanie and Shelly discuss a bit of a travel phenomenon stemming from Taiwan: flights that don't go anywhere. Read more about them and let us know if you would spend money on a "fake flight."
