Ditch the Plane S6E06 - March 30

Post by Chris »

This episode is airing on Monday March 30, 2009 @ 9pm GMT on National Geographic Channel UK. It will be repeated on Tuesday March 31 @ 12am & 4pm. The Canadian air date is unknown.
On August 2005, a Tuninter ATR-72 ran out of fuel and was forced to ditch in the sea near Palermo, Italy. Of the 39 people on board, 16 lost their lives. The mistake was simply a wrong fuel gauge that sent higher fuel readings than the actual ones.
