Thanks for downloading the Plane Safety Podcast with Pilot Pip and Capt Al.

This episode is a video podcast. Whilst you can listen to the audio only version, watching the Youtube video will add visual descriptions which aid the story.

We're looking at the incredible tale of a Cessna 188 that got lost over the Pacific Ocean in 1978. An Air New Zealand DC-10 began a search for the small aircraft using back to basics stopwatch & compass navigation and looking at the sun and sky to figure out where to go. In this video podcast we'll be examining the techniques used in locating the Cessna.

The You Tube video podcast can be viewed here.
