Mayday (also known as Air Emergency in the United States, and Air Crash Investigation in the United Kingdom and other parts of the world) is a documentation television program produced by Cineflix in Canada. It is aired on Discovery Channel and National Geographic Channel. This documentary investigates many air crashes in modern history after the introduction of the black box flight recorders. It reveals events that led up to each disaster, the causes of the accidents and the measures recommended in the report by the NTSB (National Transportation Safety Board) or the investigating Commission to prevent a similar incident happening again. It features re-enactments, interviews, testimony, computer-generated imagery, and in some episodes, CVR or Cockpit Voice Recordings to reconstruct the sequence of events to the audiences.
