Discovery Channel set to air show with real life jetliner crash

This Sunday, October 7th, the Discovery Channel will air a show entitled “Curiosity”, that seeks to answer the questions about what really happens during a jetliner crash.

In the premiere episode of CURIOSITYairing Sunday, Oct. 7 on Discovery Channel, an international team of experts will explore these questions by doing the unthinkable – deliberately crashing a full-size passenger airplane into the remote desert along the U.S.-Mexico border.

Narrated by actor Josh Charles (THE GOOD WIFE), this groundbreaking experiment looks at what actually happens during a plane crash and the science behind passengers’ best chance for survival.  Crash test dummies as well as sensors throughout the plane will reveal just what types of forces are unleashed in a typical plane crash.  Through video footage from inside the plane, viewers will see what happens during the moment of impact.

This experiment marks the first time an entire plane has been crash tested since 1984 when NASA attempted it with mixed results.  With four years of meticulous planning, this latest attempt seems ready to take flight.  However, a series of last minute obstacles prove that anything could potentially go fatally wrong.

CURIOSITY, entering its second season on Discovery Channel, brings the ‘I wonder?’ moment to television with a unique array of provocative subjects.  Upcoming episodes in CURIOSITY will include:  

• Bermuda Triangle looks at scientists who dive into the fabled triangle, analyzing its wrecks and testing different theories on real boats and planes in order to reveal the truth behind the legend.

• 21st CenturyMummy looks at a radical experiment where a dying man gifts his body to scientists attempting to uncover the secrets of Ancient Egypt’s best embalmers.

• X Ray Yellowstone explores how scientists use the latest imaging technology to pierce the surface of our most iconic national park and see its habitat and ecosystem from the inside out.

• Stonehenge asks the question ‘how did the inhabitants move ninety multi-ton stones two hundred miles across land and sea to the ancient stone circle that has stood for over 4500 years?

CURIOSITY is a co-production of Discovery Channel and Dragonfly Film and Television Productions.  Vice President, Development and Production Howard Swartz served as the Executive Producer for Discovery Channel and Simon Andreae is Senior Vice President, Development and Production.  The episode will also be shown on Channel 4 in the UK plus Pro Sieben in Germany.

(Los Angeles, Calif.) – Have you ever wondered what would happen if the plane you were on crashed?  Does bracing really help or is it a myth?  Where is the best place to sit?  And fundamentally, are planes designed so that you could survive?
