Episode 64: Payne Stewart Plane Crash

with No Comments

Summary:

Communication is key for most flights; communication between members of the flight crew is essential, and communication with air traffic control is equally important. When a private Learjet stopped communicating with ATC on October 25, 1999, officials on the ground knew quickly that the day would end in tragedy. The fates of all 6 people on board, including golfer Payne Stewart, were sealed as the plane continued its journey across the USA. In this week's episode of Take to the Sky: the Air Disaster Podcast, join Stephanie as she shares the clues investigators used to understand what went wrong and how this flight impacted aviation safety for all of us.
