Watch the documentary film from MAYDAY: Air Disaster that provides a full and thorough examination of the crash of Eastern Air Lines Flight 401, which occurred on December 29, 1972.

This disaster was a tragic and devastating event that had a significant impact on the families of those on board, as well as the aviation community as a whole, and the documentary will likely explore the lessons that were learned in order to prevent similar tragedies from occurring in the future.
