On March 27, 1977, on the island of Tenerife in the Canary Islands, two fully loaded 747 jumbo jets collided on a fogbound runway, killing 583 people in what is still the deadliest crash in aviation history. NOVA looks back at the crucial final hours before the disaster. Despite new technology to improve runway safety, near-misses on the ground are still the leading cause of deadly aviation accidents.

Deadly Circumstances

Comments about PBS NOVA: The Deadliest Plane Crash DVD:

Dince I worked for a major airline when this happened, it brought home the reasons why it should have neve happened. Thankfully the method of communication has improved so that this may never happen again. It;s a tragic story of miscommunication.

Comments about PBS NOVA: The Deadliest Plane Crash DVD:

This is an excellent video for demonstrating human falibility and how a lack of teamwork can lead to serious events. The investigation focuses on the conditions beyond "pilot error" that influenced the decisions made that led to the crash.

Aviation enthusiasts should watch this

Comments about PBS NOVA: The Deadliest Plane Crash DVD:

An excellent example in the failure of "teamwork" in the fight deck. This airing clearly showed how the fear of questioning a superior (by a 1st officer and flight engineer) was one of several factors leading to such a tragic accident. Although airlines today encourage "teamwork" in the cockpit, it is still alarming that after 30+ years, such an occurrence can still take place, despite the 21st century technology that exists.
