World's Scariest...

Series 2 - World's Scariest... Flights

To view this page ensure that Adobe Flash Player version 10.1.0 or greater is installed.

Featuring intense moments of aviation drama captured on camera, this episode offers unprecedented views from the ground and inside the plane from some of the most terrifying plane journeys.

Scenes include an amazing no-landing-gear touchdown at Warsaw airport in 2011 and an airliner exploding in a massive fireball at Okinawa, Japan. Testimony from experts, eyewitnesses and survivors provide added insight to what happened and what went wrong.

We also examine the hijacking and water-landing of Ethiopian Airlines flight 961, which informed Captain Sullenberger’s emergency landing on New York’s Hudson River in 2009. And it is not just planes, a scenic balloon flight has a brush with disaster for holidaying Brits in Luxor, Egypt, and an experienced aerobatic helicopter pilot escapes death by the skin of his teeth.

    How on earth did this programme make it to air? The commentary / voice over is the worst audio editing I have ever heard. It's worse than amateur home videos! Should anyone from 5 be reading I watched the programme broadcasted and not on demand

    Watched Terror in the skies: Scariest flights tonight. I'm at a loss as to why British TV broadcasts programs where the narrator mumbles, and is drowned out by totally unnecessary back ground music. The other peoples comments were good and clear, so why buy programs from media companies that let Audio engineers drown out the narration?

    Two minute long ads EVERY TWO MINUTES!! Had to update my adblocker to even watch this. I would've happily have watched the ads on the marked breaks, but got fed up after 8 ad breaks in under 15 mins. especially as it was the same 4 ads.

    Seriously, do you not make enough on advertising when you first broadcast these shows? 2mins 30 secs of adverts before it starts and then at every possible place to put them throughout too... Sort it out!!!

    This plays perfectly okay for me. Why dont the people complaining about it freezing pay for a better internet connection or get a better computer. Its keeps freezing because you're cheapskates

    Ridiculous freezing of this program over and over and over again. Why offer this service when it clearly is as much use as a chocolate fireguard. A great way to lose custom

    Why is the sound from 78rpm scratched records? regular click-click-kkkkkkr all the way through. Loved the bongo music, shame some idiot was trying to tell me about plane crashes at the same time.

    Well i'm going to applaud CH5, for i've just watched this programme flawlessly and refreshingly with no ads! It's probably a glitch though!

    If your willing to watch bbci snooker at the same time your trying to stream c5 then you have a chance of not throwing your laptop! And thats because its so boring waiting for c5 to stop freezing!

    Why is it that the program itself will freeze and cut in the middle all the time, but the ads will work perfectly and and will always be shown regardless of the fact that they've been seen few time earlier. why not just change to name of the program to, "All the ads in the worlds: again and again and again"!

    Absolutely useless, this will be the last time I use Channel 5 on demand. I've only managed to watch 8 minutes, video just keeps freezing. Channel 5 fix this now, or risk loosing even more viewers.

    45 min later....still only seen 8 min! This is the first time i've used Channel 5 on demand - I wish I had recorded it. It plays for 20 seconds then you have at least a 5 min break, at least put in some adverts rather than just freezing the picture!

    i can never stop thinking of these worst case scenarios when im on a plane, funnily enough my only comfort to combat this is the fact that we will all probably die instantly!
