Fun fact: Airplane accidents have a 95.7% survivability rate, according to the US National Transportation Safety Board. This story actually has a 99.02% survivability rate – but those that do die – you might want to limber your neck, because you’re going to be shaking your head.

On this episode: you won’t learn to fly a plane but I will be able to teach you how not to fly one; we’ll learn what happens when you go skydiving at ground-level; and we’ll learn about a victim who was killed by her own rescuers - twice.

This story will showcase what became of a once proud company known for safety and innovation, and how they’ve become the laughing stock of airlines. Speaking of laughing, we’re also going to test your sense of humour in this one. For starts, yes, one of the victims has something unimaginable happen, and for no good reason - twice! And it’s not just the circumstances of the death that will get off to a weird start - it’s the media’s coverage of the event. I’ll tell you about that right at the end, and ho lee fuk is it a weird one.

Celebrity guests include: virtuoso and piano enthusiast, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart; nervous former pilot from Airplane: The Movie, Ted Striker; one-man anti-terrorist task force and movie star, John McClane; and a quick visit from professional worriers, Serena Williams and Tom Hanks.
And if you were a Patreon supporter, you would also enjoy an additional 12 minutes where we discussed:

•  Canada’s love/hate relationship with a retailer legally called Crappy Tire

•  how Boeing became such an absolute fart of a company

•  we recapped the beloved Christmas tale Die Hard 2

•  we explored the parallels between this disaster and Airplane: The Movie

•   and the world’s first safety segment within a safety segment where we cover what to do if you survive a plane crash and the universe tries to Final Destination you about it
