A commercial aircraft spewing debris, with its wings snapped into pieces and its hull cut cleanly in half. It looks like a crash perfect enough for a TV show. And in fact that’s just what it was.
Google Maps aerial view (See Map) has got some great shots of a simulated plane crash that was created for the television series Trauma. The mock airliner crash was filmed on the runway of the former Navy base at Alameda Point.
A Boeing airliner was used as the mock-up of the crashed plane. The episode was filmed in 2009. Google’s aerial view imagery of the area was released at the end of 2009. Checkout the plane crash landing sequence from NBC’s Trauma TV series below.
