How do you explain the deaths of 350 people? How do you explain a sequence of events that is so tragic in its simplicity that resulted in needless deaths? Perhaps that is the core objective of Head On Aircrash: an investigative 60-minute documentary to explain the world’s worst mid-air collision in history.

On November 12, 1996, a Kazakhstan airlines jet and a Saudi Arabian airlines jet crashed in the fields of Charkhi-Dadri, two small villages in Haryana, India. 350 passengers and crews, of both the aircrafts and 350 families died that day. The Indian government acted swiftly, perhaps to the surprise of many, and within a year declared its verdict. But a few facts always remained unanswered and a few remained in the dark.

A decade later we re-open the log books, re-examine the transcripts, put the available data to renewed scrutiny, and cut through the dense jargon. The panel of experts constitute of two of the original Lahoti Commission panellists, an Indian Air Force officer, the investigator who examined the Saudi Black Box and a the member of the Indian Pilot’s Association.

A blend of the state of the art CG of the crash and the two aircrafts in flights, realistic portrayal of the last few minutes of the two flights and the Approach/Departure control of the Delhi ATC, archive footage and actual investigation footage that has never been seen before help in recreating with accuracy the 1 in 100 million occurrence in the field of aviation.

Head On - AirCrash has been produced for the National Geographic Channel.
