The Tenerife Air Crash - 1977

Dec 17, 2018, 06:00 AM

It's 1977. It's Tenerife and a bunch of angry Canarian separatists are about to set off the worst chain reaction since Diana Ross.

In what many single-issue agitators are already calling the 10th episode of the CB Wallop Podcast, join Phil Jerrod and Phil Lucas as they discuss The Tenerife Air Disaster - two massive planes, two football-obsessed air traffic controllers, a whole load of fog and a whole load more confusion that lead to the worst aviation disaster of all time.

Should men watch less football? Yes… yes they bloody should.
