Text
NARRATOR: Every flight begins and ends here, a strip of asphalt scorched by jet engines and marred with rubber. But not all runways are created equal[1]. One of the world's most notorious is runway 35L at Congonhas Airport in Brazil.
MAN: It could surprise you at any moment.
NARRATOR: In July 2007, TAM Airlines flight 3054 becomes its latest victim[2].
F/O: Decelerate. Decelerate!
CAPTAIN: It can't, it can't!
NARRATOR: The runway claims 199 lives. It would be carefully scrutinized, its history revealed[3]. Investigators desperately need to know why runway 35L is so dangerous...
VOICEOVER: 35L.
NARRATOR: ...before more lives are lost.
