What causes an entire plane full of people - including passengers and crew - to become incapacitated? In this episode of Take to the Sky: The Air Disaster Podcast, Shelly tells the eerie story of Helios Airways Flight 522, which became a ghost plane high above Athens, Greece.
Stephanie mentioned she visited Athens in high school- and this is the photo of her visit to the Acropolis, which she could see from her hotel's balcony.
