  1. All week Seven was running promos for Air Crash Investigations featuring a Qantas plane and asking a question “could something this small (a small metal part) bring down a plane?”. The program had nothing to do with Qantas. It was an American airline that had a safe hard landing caused by human error(s) and weather. A “small metal part” was not mentioned as it had nothing to do with the hard landing.

    1. Presumably the wrong episode ran? Does happen from time to time. ABC played same episode of Mad As Hell two weeks running a couple of years back.

      1. They played S22 E7. Don’t know of any episode that covers a Qantas crash, especially a Qantas crash attributed to a small piece of equipment. Qantas last had a fatal crash in 1951 when 3 were killed. Perhaps Seven readers could enlighten which ep of ACI features a Qantas plane ‘brought down by a tiny piece of equipment’?
