In 1996, a Douglas DC-9 aircraft operated by ValuJet Airlines took off from Miami International Airport bound for Atlanta Hartsfield Jackson Airport in Georgia. Only eight minutes later, a fire that had started during take-off, started to spread throughout the cargo hold, eventually engulfing the cabin and cockpit, which caused the electrical systems to fail. When Captain Candi Kubeck said: “We need to go back to Miami”, the crew knew that this was the turning point of life or death. While the pilots were overwhelmed by the perilous situation, the smoke gradually started to take over them while the DC-9 was in a nose dive. At this point, the crew were both unconcious. Seconds later it crashed into the Florida Everglades, killing all 110 passengers and crew on board.
