Six of the 12 passengers on board were killed in what was the worst airline ground crash ever in Cork’s aviation history.

The documentary features survivors of the crash, some of who speak publicly for the first time about the disaster.

Donal Walsh one of the survivors recalls the harrowing ordeal, “I looked out the window and I saw that the wing was on fire. I knew I had to find a means of escape”.

More than 35 fire officers were involved in the emergency operation.

Fire fighter Tadhg O’Mathúna, describes vividly what confronted him once he got inside the plane to try and rescue the passengers.

Fr Michael Murphy who administered the last rites to the victims in a temporary field hospital at the scene of the crash recalls, “the feeling of horror, and bewilderment and amazement at these young people who were now no more. It was awful”.

The documentary will broadcast on Sunday, February 12th at 9.30pm on TG4 to mark the first anniversary of crash.
