Season 7
Episode 6

It was a masterpiece of flying, a race against time to right an out-of-control Boeing 747 before it spirals into the Pacific Ocean. The crew somehow made a miraculous recovery and safely landed their aircraft. The plane's captain was instantly hailed as a hero. Investigators piecing together the events of the near disaster, however, tell a different story. Relive the harrowing six-mile plummet of China Airlines Flight 006 and the findings of the NTSB examination that revealed the effects jet lag and lack of sleep can have on pilots.
