This article discusses the Prime Video documentary Flight / Risk and will cover the release date, the premise, the trailer, and other details about the series.

The new documentary Flight / Risk, coming to Prime Video on September 9, will challenge the way viewers look at plane security and the money machine behind airplane companies by examining two accidents that happened very close to each other in recent memory.

The premise

From Amazon: “Flight / Risk follows everyday people who find themselves in the midst of a global tragedy when two Boeing 737 Max planes crashed only five months apart in 2018 and 2019. This powerful documentary is told through the perspective of affected family members, their legal teams, whistleblowers, and Pulitzer-winning Seattle Times journalist Dominic Gates.”

Our opinion of the premise

Certainly very interesting but also a bit frightening to those that either travel constantly or are about to board a plane. It seems like the documentary will challenge the popular, unfounded belief that whenever a plane accident happens, people boarding subsequent flights will be safe, as they don’t happen very close to each other.

But it also looks like it will go even beyond that and challenge the very safety of plane traveling. Again, not the most encouraging message that frequent travelers would like to hear, but an important one nonetheless. By challenging their viewers and telling them how things are and not how they would like them to be, the filmmakers behind this documentary are forcing critical thinking and asking for change when needed. We will check out for ourselves what they have to say when it comes out.
