Did anybody else last night's edition of the above programme on National Geographic tv channel?
It showed a crash investigator from the NTSB photographing the remains of the aircraft using a Pentax camera. Don't know which as you didn't see the camera clearly enough but you could see "TAX" on the camera strap.

Given the context, I would have taken no pleasure in seeing a Pentax being used.

I would have preferred to have seen a Pentax being used for photographing planes in flight but..........you know the rest!

So what should they have used to help find the cause of the crash? The camera is only a tool in this instance, I was just pleased to see that the production team had decided to use a Pentax, not necessarily the NTSB.

Probably my “favourite” programme on Sky, my girlfriend jokes that I should be employed by the NTSB

Many of the episodes / crashes occurred before the digital age, that it makes sense that Pentax film cameras makes an appearance.
