2018 Documentary 1976 Zagreb Mid-Air Collision

Just uploaded is a HRT TV Croatia documentary on the 1976 Zagreb Mid-Air Collision with English subtitles.
53 Minutes and well worth while watching for Air Traffic Controllers or Commercial Pilots especially those who think it is OK to read newspapers or books on the console.
Good explanations of the causes of the accident and what really happened to the passengers of both aircraft.
The real story has been suppressed by the British Government until 2049 and I believe the Governments of former Yugoslavia as some critical documents and audio recordings have "gone missing" as everyone in the Public Service understands.
Good luck!

I always found it strange that reading a magazine was dangerous in this world of TCAS but sleeping under the controlled rest program was perfectly ok.

Still, this is a very interesting documentary despite the rather bizarre "introduction" and I certainly have to thank the English language producer as well as for the content. Not sure I agree with much of it, but it is an alternative perspective for sure, and for historical ATC interesting.

Have read the book Zagreb One four, other than the UK documentary and the report not much if anything else out there.
