Discovery Channel filmmakers intentionally crashed a Boeing 727 in the Mexico desert for an upcoming documentary show.

The crash was for an episode of "Curiosity," that will explore whether passengers can feasibly survive a plane crash.

No passengers were on board the 727, and the pilot safely ejected minutes before the crash.

The plane was filed with crash test dummies and other scientific equipment to record impact data.

Producers crashed the 727 in an uninhabited area of the Sonoran Desert in Mexico.
