B737-291 N980UA went on to fly for Conviasa, except that on some kind of post-modification test flight, the aircraft experienced CFIT and was a total loss.
Also, I've flown AMS-MSP on N820NW, the A330-300 involved in the recent Christmas Day terrorism event. NW lost my luggage on that one. Fortunately, no loss of life or serious aircraft damage resulted from the tighty-whitey bomber.
For some reason, I want to say there's another one in my repertoire...

I've never bothered checking as it's a bit too time consuming to cross reference so many registrations, but I flew on a Syrian Yak-40 which had a landing incident and caused me to break some ribs. IIRC it was sent to Minsk for overhaul shortly afterwards, but I'm not sure if it did any more commercial flying inbetween, wouldn't surprise me if it did, that thing was in a bad shape anyway - I've never seen a glass fatigue crack run all the way around a window.

I flew on N93119 ATH-JFK on the day she went down as TWA800 flying JFK-CDG later that night.
I'm almost certain I flew HB-IWF at some point before she crashed as SR111 with how many times I flew JFK-GVA and JFK-ZRH on the SR MD-11s. I had flown GVA-JFK on the same afternoon as SR111 crashed, just a few hours before, but it wasn't HB-IWF doing that flight.

Yes , but many years apart , flew ZK-NAS more times than I can remember on AKL-WLG return during the early - mid 1980s while she was operating for NZ . Many years later , and a long long way from home it crashed at FRU while operating for Itek Air .
Moderation in all things ... including moderation ;-)

I flew on a 1966-build Fokker F.27-200 in July 2007. It was Air Panama's HP-1541PST. Three months later, the aircraft lost power on take-off and crashed just past the runway at PAC (iirc). It was a write-off
Cubana Flight 201 took off from Santo Domingo (SDQ) on a regular service to Havana (HAV). At 45 nm from SDQ and at an altitude of 25000 feet the nr.2 engine suffered an uncontained failure. Fuel lines to engine nr.1 were compromised and a fire erupted. Also, debris had penetrated the fuselage, causing a decompression. Both engines were shut down and the captain decided to return to Santo Domingo.
An emergency descent was carried out, followed by a safe emergency landing.
I find this scary since two other IL-62 aircraft had fatal crashes for the same exact reason.

On 24. October, 1997, I flew on AA 1144 from SFO to DFW. It was operated by N215AA. I still remember sitting on the ground as the bags were being loaded, since there were a lot of 49'ers fans on the flight. I was headed to AUS for my aunt's funeral. Two years later on June 1, 1999, it landed at LIT in a very heavy storm, ran off the end of the runway, and crashed into a steel tower. It was operating from DFW as flight 1420, and killed 11 of the 145 passengers.

I flew this AF 340 about 8 months before it crashed... I flew the aircraft between CDG and SXM... I was shocked when I saw the registration of the aircraft... Thank God no one was killed in the accident... I must admit that it was very scary to knowing that I was in the very plane only a few months back...

I too had flown on this plane, from CDG to ORD back in 2001
