Gone to the Dogs

Dogs Might Fly

t’s a show about training dogs to be pilots. Three canine behaviour experts spend episode one visiting rescue centres, in search of 12 finalists who progress to an intensive, nine-week residential skills academy. Can the dogs walk up a slope, follow a pointed finger and find a sausage in a kennel? If they can, it’s likely they’ll be able to fly a light aircraft. Hosting this jolly excuse for a lot of pooch cuteness – and, oddly, some clanging product placement for cars – is a faintly ashamed Jamie Theakston.

The latest ACI S15 have aired:

Deadly Mission

On 18 September 1961, a Douglas DC-6 operated by Transair Sweden, carrying Dag Hammarskjöld, the second Secretary-General of the United Nations, crashes en route to cease-fire negotiations in Zambia during the Congo Crisis. All of the 16 passengers and crew members die in the incident.

Edge of Disaster

On 10 October 2006, Atlantic Airways Flight 670 lands at Stord Airport, but the aircraft overruns the runway and crashes after careering off a steep embankment. 4 of the 16 people on board were killed in the incident. The causes of the crash were a malfunction of the aircraft's spoilers and hydroplaning.

Deadly Delay

On 20 August 2008, Spanair Flight 5022 attempts to takeoff from Barajas Airport, but stalls immediately, banks to the right, and crashes, killing 154 people out of the 172 on board. The pilots aborted the first takeoff attempt, and the second one resulted in the crash.

Carnage in Sao Paulo

On 31 October 1996, TAM Transportes Aéreos Regionais Flight 402 crashes seconds after takeoff from São Paulo–Congonhas Airport into a heavily populated residential area, killing all 96 people on board and three on the ground. The crash was attributed to the uncommanded deployment of a faulty thrust reverser on the right engine.

All available at the regular places.
