Channel 4 has ordered a fast-turnaround documentary about the safety of flying following last week’s Germanwings air disaster.
ITN Productions’ How Safe Are Our Planes? is an hour-long film which will investigate if air travel remains the safest form of travel, examining the safety record of the airline industry and pilots. It follows the mass-murder of 150 passengers on an Airbus 320 flight from Barcelona to Dusseldorf when co-pilot Andreas Lubitz intentionally crashed the jet into the Alps.
The film will be executive produced by Ian Russell and produced by Mark Gregory. It will air on 1 April 2015 at 8pm.
