Air Crash Investigations S02E02 – A Wounded Bird (One Wing Flight)

On 21 August 1995, Atlantic Southeast Airlines Flight 529 is climbing to its cruising altitude when a blade on the left-side propeller comes off. The imbalance of the rotating propeller causes the engine to partly tear itself from its mounting, creating excessive drag. The aircraft rapidly loses altitude and crashes, killing nine people. Metal fatigue in the propeller blade caused its failure.
