1. Sharp Mountain B25 Crash USA
The story of what happened when a B-25 Mitchell Bomber slammed straight into Sharp Top Mountain about the town of Bedford, Virginia, killing all five passengers on board. Garth learns what really happened on the night of the crash after the cause of the crash officially came back as 'unknown'.

2. Sikorski's Last Flight
Sikorski's Last Flight The documentary concludes with a look at a 1943 crash in Gibraltar, which killed General Wladyslaw Sikorski, the Prime Minister of Poland's London-based government. Presenter Garth Barnard investigates many of the unanswered questions from the tragedy, including why the pilot was wearing a life jacket and why many of the bodies believed to be on the plane were never found, and asks whether the accident could have actually been an assassination.

3. Baker's Creek Australia's Worst Aviation Disaster

WW2 Air Detective investigates what happened on the night of the 8th of July 1944, when two Wellington bombers collided killing 13 soldiers, before the war for them had even begun.


5. C47 Napier 28
This doco looks at how the power of nature was no match for a WWII era plane, in the single worst US plane crash of the war. A C-47 transport plane plunged into the ground, killing the 24 trainee fighter pilots in the process. The crash still holds relevance today, proving how important reliant weather forecasting is to planes.
