A very interesting NOVA program describes the investigation of the sudden descent of a 737 during a routine turn at night. Good coverage of the "field" (jungle) investigation. Apparent cause was faulty attitude indication leading to over correction and inversion of the aircraft. Primary artificial horizons were both connected to the same gyro. All three attitude gyro units tested OK. A possible cable fault was discovered. This program broadcast Nov. 30 in Seattle. Watch for it.
