A little unfair, particularly in the case of Flight 19.

I've seen the program now. Pretty good, though I'm surprised
methane hydrates didn't get a mention.

The Flight 19 story might better have been illustrated with a
map. If Charles Taylor thought he'd flown over the Florida Keys,
he'd have thought he was in the Gulf of Mexico. Therefore
turning North, then East, would have been logical. But if he was
over the Atlantic (as he almost certainly was), turning North,
then East would simply have gotten him into worse trouble and
ultimately doomed him and his men to a watery grave. The
critical evidence relates to the fact that the radio
transmissions were getting increasingly faint, which clearly
suggests the aircraft were indeed heading East, further out into
the Atlantic, further away from the transmitters.

Best wishes,

Nick Pope
