Mayday: Season 4 Episode 2

Falling from the Sky (British Airways Flight 9)

On 24 June 1982, British Airways Flight 9 experiences St. Elmo’s fire en route from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to Perth, Australia. A few minutes later, all four engines flame out. After descending, the crew successfully restarts the engines and lands safely. The St. Elmo’s fire and engine flame-outs were caused by volcanic ash spewed by Galunggung in Indonesia during a major eruption.
