From a media release:
Cineflix announced the start of production on season 15 of its long running hit series MAYDAY (Air Crash Investigation). Cineflix is producing 10 one-hour episodes, bringing the series total to an incredible 130 episodes. MAYDAY airs on Discovery Channel and Canal D in Canada and on National Geographic Channel internationally.
Riveting stories featured in season 15 include the investigation of Asiana Airlines Flight 214 which crashed on its final approach into San Francisco International Airport – the first fatal accident involving a Boeing 777; the circumstances surrounding the crash of a DC-6 carrying UN Secretary-General Dag Hammarskjöld, en route to cease-fire negotiations; and the fatal UPS Airlines Flight 6 cargo plane crash, which resulted in more than thirty recommendations for safety improvements.
Since its debut in 2003, MAYDAY has taken viewers behind the scenes of the world’s most catastrophic aviation disasters in search of the clues that can prevent similar tragedies from happening again. Based on cockpit voice recorders, accident reports, and insider accounts by the investigators themselves, every episode also features state-of-the-art CGI, and gripping reenactments.
