The Crash of Helios Airways Flight #522

Today’s podcast goes back a few years to the crash of Helios Airways flight #522, outside of Athens, Greece.  This is one of those accidents that completely freaks me out, personally, because of the circumstances behind it.  If you don’t know about the crash, then once the details are revealed, you’ll know what I’m talking about.

One small point of clarification: about 23 minutes into the podcast, I say “military license” when I meant “commercial license”.  Didn’t catch that until after everything was ready to go, so sorry about that!

As always, you can download the latest podcast from here, find us on iTunes, find us on Stitcher, or listen to the episode from the embedded player below.

Last additional note.  The website for Code7700 is new to me, and seems to be a treasure-trove of no-nonsense (e.g. not sensationalized) details about air crash investigations.  If that’s your cup of tea, go take a gander!
