with No Comments

Summary:

When traveling on a plane, you'll hear plenty of chimes, dings, and other sounds that indicate how the flight is progressing. One sound you don't want to hear, though, is the smoke detector. In this week's episode of Take to the Sky: The Air Disaster Podcast, Stephanie tells the story of Saudia Flight 163, where a smoke detector warned of possible danger just seven minutes after takeoff. But was smoke the biggest problem this flight encountered? You won't believe the unexpected twists, turns, and details this tale has in store for you!

Show Notes:

Shelly mentioned that there is a hotel in Iceland that lets guests sleep in a bubble under the stars- it's a great (socially distanced) way to see the Northern Lights! Take a look at the 5 Million Star Hotel!
