He managed to crash land on to a golf course, clipping a tree on the way down. Ford was critically injured, but a surgeon, who was on the course golfing when it crashed, pulled him out of the plane and helped him till paramedics arrived. Ford suffered amnesia in the accident and could not recall the events that led to the crash. Investigators studied the evidence and put the pieces together.

Titanic

On the night of April 14, 1912, the RMS Titanic, on her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York, collided with an iceberg in the middle of the North Atlantic and sank within a few hours, drowning 1500 of its 2,200 passengers. The theories on how she sank are numerous. Was it the smouldering fire in the ship’s coal bunker that accelerated the ship’s sinking? Perhaps the ship was built from brittle and inferior steel? Was the rapid sinking caused by weak rivets, or a fatal design flaw in the ship’s watertight compartments? Collision Course: Titanic explores all the theories, no matter how incredible and leads to the final determination that the real cause of the accident is over-confidence in technology and arrogance that any ship could be “unsinkable.”
