Danger­ous Flights

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Satur­day, 7.30pm, Turbo Max Did you know there is a right way and a wrong way to fly a plane? Thank­fully we’re not talk­ing about pas­sen­ger jets, though a re­cent 60 Min­utes story about an Air France Air­bus 330 — which killed all 288 on board when it plunged into the At­lantic mid-flight in 2009 — could make you won­der. But no, this is about lit­tle tiny planes be­ing flown well out­side their dis­tance ca­pac­ity in ‘‘ the most ex­treme kind of fly­ing you can do’’. See, I thought that would have been jet fighter Top Gun stuff, but there you go. No mat­ter how far or how danger­ous, the men in this doc­u­men­tary will fly their lit­tle planes any­where, in any weather — for a price.
