On Wed 21 Jan SBS will start a new series call WWII Air Crash Detectives

Bakers Creek, Australia, 14th June, 1943.
For the men about to board "Miss Every Morning Fixin", the pressures of the War had been eased by a period of rest and relaxation in Queensland, but they were about to return to war operations in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea.
They were never to return.
Shortly after take-off the aircraft plunged into the ground killing everyone aboard - apart from one survivor, who would spend the rest of his life coping with the injuries he received that day.
This accident is still Australia’s worse ever plane crash and yet it was hushed up by the Australian and US governments until after the war had ended, with the relatives being told that those on board had perished in a crash over the South Pacific.

Worth a look

SBSOne Mon 20:30 - 21:30
Worst Place To Be A Pilot
In the first episode, the new recruits come face to face with the remarkable range of challenges that flying in Indonesia presents; Captain George is greeted by a large group of tribes people after he becomes the first pilot to land on a runway that's taken them 14 years to cut into the side of a mountain.
The locals tell him about their cannibal ancestors.
Guy takes drastic action as a passenger has a mid-air panic attack, and Sam struggles to control the plane during landing as he flies local tribes people to one of the most remote and spectacular runways in the world.
(Part 1 of 4) (From the UK) (Documentary) PG CC
