Season 2 of Curiosity is getting things started with a bang. OK, it's more than a bang. A whole lot more. In a TV first, Discovery Channel remote control crashed a 727 plane. Yes, you read that right - CRASHED A PLANE. In the name of science, of cour... (more)se. The Boeing 727 passenger jet was deliberately crashed in a remote and unpopulated part of the Sonoran Desert, to recreate a serious, but survivable, passenger jet crash landing. Narrated by actor Josh Charles (THE GOOD WIFE), this episode takes viewers inside a full-size passenger airplane on its final flight. An international team of experts is using this amazing event to study the crashworthiness of the aircraft's airframe and cabin as well as the impact of crashes on the human body. What they find could be used to make planes safer!
