KLM 4805 Rolls Down the Runway Toward Pan Am 1736

KLM 4805 Rolls Down the Runway Toward Pan Am 1736 Disasters Tragedies and Triumphs

This recreated scene, from NOVA's documentary The Deadliest Plane Crash, demonstrates the position of both 747s as KLM 4805 begins its roll down the Tenerife runway.  By the time either flight crew was aware of the other's presence, it was too late to effectively take evasive action.
