It's aviation's ultimate nightmare - when the plane itself lets you down. Modern aircraft are incredibly sophisticated machines, but even though every component is tested and retested, it's impossible to totally eliminate mechanical failure. Today's biggest planes have 4 million parts, fly 6000 miles a week, 48 weeks a year.
