This Mistake Cost 16 Skydivers Their Lives (Lake Erie Disaster)

The in-depth story of the Lake Erie Skydiving Disaster 1967.
Twenty skydivers eagerly board a World War Two Bomber plane for a complimentary high-altitude jump. Little do they know it would turn into the deadliest disaster in the history of recreational skydiving. As the plane ascends, they prepare for the exhilarating jump. But then, the weather worsens, and a thick layer of clouds engulfs the sky. Despite the golden rule of skydiving – “don’t jump if you can’t see the target” – the thrill-seekers leap into the abyss below, and sixteen fall to their deaths in the cold waters of Lake Erie in Ohio.
