Florida Swamp Air Crash is the 32nd episode of Seconds from Disaster to find the cause of a crash on the Everglades.

Plot Edit

ValuJet Flight 592, a DC-9 with 110 people on board is bound for Atlanta, Georgia from Miami, Florida. While it taxis for take-off, expired oxygen generators activate in the cargo hold. The oxygen ignites in the overheated hold. Shortly after take-off, the cargo fire is so large that the cabin is consumed in flames. The jet loses control and goes down in the Everglades. There are no survivors as the wreckage is entirely absorbed by the swamp.
