Inflight fire is one of the worst situations for any pilot or passenger. On May 11, 1996, everyone onboard ValuJet Flight 592 tries desperately to survive as things inside the cabin only get worse by the minute. Join Shelly in this episode of Take to the Sky: The Air Disaster Podcast as she explores what led to this tragic fire and how aviation needed to make systemic changes to keep passengers safe.
In this episode, Shelly shared how she was remembering to forget 2020 by purchasing two snarky ornaments. You can find them on Etsy if you, too, are remembering to forget!
