Patreon Episode: British Airways Flight 38

with No Comments

Exclusive for Podcrashers:

British Airways Flight 38 was going according to plan – until it wasn’t. With less than a minute left before the Boeing 777 was to land at Heathrow Airport on January 17, 2008, both engines rolled back to idle power. In this Patreon episode of Take to the Sky: The Air Disaster Podcast, we explore the unexpected crash landing and subsequent AAIB investigation that uncovered a hidden problem deep within a critical system that could only be discovered under the most unique of circumstances.
