Summary May 24, 1988: Flying through a violent tropical thunderstorm, TACA Flight #110 begins its final descent towards New Orleans when both engines fail and the plane begins dropping from the sky. The pilots restart both engines but almost immediately they overheat forcing the pilots to shut them down. Without power for the second time and falling fast, they consider ditching the plane in a canal but aim instead for a narrow grass levee. With 38 passengers bracing for a crash, the pilots manage one of the most remarkable landings in the history of commercial aviation. Then it's up to investigators to determine why the engines of a brand new Boeing 737 failed in mid-flight
