In The Unflyable Plane, the crew of United airlines DC-10 managed to land in Sioux City, Iowa without any functioning hydraulic systems.

 

On July 19th 1989 a United Airlines DC-10, with 296 people on board, took off from Denver on a route to Chicago. At 30,000ft, the rear engine blew. So began a 45-minute struggle to avoid a deadly crash. Shot in Arizona, this BBC reconstruction, The Unflyable Plane, includes an archive interview with the captain, who miraculously survived.

 

The Unflyable Plane is part of the BBC series, Disaster - series 1, which takes a look at health and safety disasters throughout history.
