Summary Can a novice pilot actually land a commercial airplane with instructions from air traffic control? How long does it take to hit the ground for 4000 feet? Can you have a conversation with someone while you're free falling during a skydive? Can you catch up to someone during a free fall? The Mythbuster's, Jamie Heneman and Adam Savage don't merely state the myths, they put them to the test in the Mythbusters Airplane Special. The Mythbuster's are no strangers to aviation myths; they've made mince meat out of an airplane, they've fired chicken meat at an airplane, and they've even used an airplane to make a bus take to the sky. Now they are back with some new flights of fancy. (From the US, in English) (Documentary Series
