Episode 62: Singapore Airlines Flight 006

with No Comments


As a typhoon crawled toward Taiwan, Singapore Airlines Flight 006 began its taxi toward the runway, and the flight crew was prepared for a slippery but safe departure toward calmer skies en route to Los Angeles. Before the plane was airborne, a frightening observation from the cockpit threatened the lives of every person on board. In this week's episode of Take to the Sky: The Air Disaster Podcast, Stephanie walks us through the events and decisions that contributed to the first fatal flight in the airline's history and questioned how the plane ended up in a perilous position.
