Summary:

Very early in the morning on January 21, 1985, 65 passengers boarded a charter flight from Reno to Minneapolis for the trip home after a quick weekend away. As the plane became airborne, the entire frame began to shake violently. In this week's episode of Take to the Sky: The Air Disaster Podcast, Stephanie shares the story of devastation, shock, and confusion that emerged as investigators learned what went wrong as well as how the flight served to make flight safer for future passengers.

Show Notes:

This week, we talk all about the US tradition of Black Friday shopping. Is there anything worth waking up at 1 AM to wait in line for after a day of eating turkey, stuffing, and pie? Although Stephanie is hoping to find an XBox Series X and a copy of Microsoft Flight Simulator one of these days, there's not much else that would send us out to those lines. We also talk about pumpkin spice lattes. One of us loves it, and one of us is not a fan- are you Team PSL, or do you skip them? Do you have good things happening in your life? Don't forget to let us know! Share your Flying High moments with us on Facebook!
