===Seconds From Disaster - Show General Information===
The program investigates historically relevant man-made and natural disasters. Each episode aims to explain a single incident by analyzing the causes and circumstances that ultimately affected the disaster.
The series features historical reenactment, interviews, testimony, and CGI (Computer-generated Imagery) to deconstruct the sequence of events second-by-second for the audience.
Each episode begins with a chronological re-enactment of the disaster, which is always cut into several scenes displaying critical moments in the unfolding of the disaster with a clock appearing at the beginning of each scene. After the sequence of events, the show "winds back" the scenes to analyse the causes and events leading up to it.
=== Episode Information ===
El Al Flight 1862, a Boeing 747-200F cargo plane, takes-off from Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam, the Netherlands (Holland). Metal fatigue in the fuse pin holding up the inner engine on the right wing causes it to fail and force the engine to break off. The engine running at full power shot forward and knocked out the outer engine and damaged 30 ft. of the wing. The lift between the wings becomes unbalanced, but at its current speed, the plane is able to remain relatively level in the air. However, 8 minutes later, when the crew slow down the plane for landing, Flight 1862 banks greatly to the right and loses altitude. The aircraft crashes into a high rise apartment building, killing 43 people.
=== COMING SOON===
As of today I have another 11 episodes to upload and will try to get one done every couple of days until they are all done. If there is a particular episode you are looking for, pm me and I'll try to move it up the list.
=== Uploader's Comments===
Note 1: I've discovered that two of my earlier 17 uploads of this particular show have commercials and I'm trying to find software and figure out how to use it in order to eliminate same (Thank you for your previous comments and suggestions in this regard, I will get to them soon) . If you've downloaded one of these with the adverts you have my apologies. This particular episode is advert free.
Note 2: In a couple of instances I've noticed the audio slightly out of sync with the video. As these episodes are mostly narrated by an unseen narrator it is of little consequence and only affects the occasional portion of the show involving very short interviews. In the 30 or so episodes I have viewed I have also seen one or two blackouts of a very short duration. Neither issue affected my enjoyment of the particular episode in question. I am new at all of this and would welcome any and all feedback. Feel free to leave a comment or pm me directly.
Enjoy the show.
