China Airlines Flight 006 Crash Documentary – Panic Over The Pacific

Season 4 Episode 6

China Airlines Flight 006 (callsign "Dynasty 006") is a daily non-stop flight from Taipei to Los Angeles International Airport. On February 19, 1985, the Boeing 747SP operating the flight was involved in an aircraft upset accident after the No. 4 engine flamed out. The plane rolled over and plunged 30,000 ft (9,100 m), experiencing high speeds and g-forces (approaching 5g) before the captain was able to recover from the rapid dive, and then to divert to San Francisco International Airport.[1]
