Summary

Aeronautical engineer Brendan Walker looks at how the reliance on increasingly complex technology in planes could cause pilots to make new kinds of errors. He reveals cases where aviators have fallen asleep, suffered emotional breakdowns and even forgotten to land, and visits research centres for an insight into the near misses that can put the lives of passengers in danger.
