Audio is low on screener Only a few minutes after take-off from Denver, a mid-air explosion rips a Seattle-bound airliner apart, killing all 44 aboard. At the scene where the wreckage fell, investigations for clues to the unexplained blast sift twisted fragments that tell of a shocking disaster. Establishing shot - Rescuers carrying a body wrapped in a white sheet. MCUS - Two rescue workers looking at the twisted mass of once a plane. CUS - Part of the up-side-down fuselage. CUS - Passenger seats. MS/WA - Farmland where the plane crashed. MCUS - Tail part of the plane, United Air Lines but just the word United is on the tail.
