Buckle up for a gripping journey as "Turbulence: How Safe Is Your Flight?" (1 x 60') goes onboard Singapore Airlines flight SQ321, which left one man dead and many others with life changing injuries. With detailed analysis of the drama that unfolded in severe turbulence at 37,000 feet, the documentary examines the science of turbulence, exploring its causes, effects, and implications, whether it can be predicted and avoided and whether this is a phenomenon that is getting worse as a result of climate change.

Featuring exclusive interviews with passengers from the flight, pilots, air crew, and aviation and climate scientists, together with cutting edge flight simulations and user generated content from the flight, the documentary reveals how pilots and aircraft deal with mid-flight challenges caused by turbulence. Looking to the future it explores the innovative solutions being designed to cope with increased turbulence, the pioneering engineering behind planes of the future and how passengers can take precautions to make flying as safe as possible.
