My airport YHZ has had one major crash - MK Airlines 747-200F in October 2004. Anyone have similar major crashes ( Boeing 737 or bigger) at their hometown airport?

I don't know if this topic has been discussed before...

A bit more distant:

I am based at JFK, and the list is quite long for incidents and accidents both on the field and nearby. In fact, JFK has had its fair share of ill-fated flights originate at JFK bound for destinations throughout the world (such at TWA Flight 800, AA 587), and even one or two that were coming into JFK that didn't make it (like the Avianca flight).

It's pretty interesting if you go into the photo search engine on here, put on the filter for JFK and accidents/incidents....4 pages of pictures come up and that doesn't include that many of the incidents. I know that topic has come up before "originating airports with high accident rates" or something like that.

CVG: Tahoma Air CV-580 crashing at the world of sports golf course in 2004.
TWA Flight 159, BA707- Runway overrun caused by the pilot thinking he hit a stuck DL DC9-- in 1967.
TWA Flight 128, CV-880- Crashed on approach to RWY18.
Air Canada 797, DC9- fire started in lavatory, landed on 27, and fire spread to entire cabin, killing about half on board.
I know there's more, but those are the only ones off the top of my head.

Last crash PDX saw was a UA DC-8 during the late 70's, it ran out of fuel on approach to PDX, it went down in a residential neighborhood, took out a few houses but no big fire or casualties. Interesting note, there was a prisoner being transported on this plane, they un-handcuffed him when they crashed, he helped people off the plane, then disappeared never to be seen again.

Sure, but isn't it unfair to compare ORD (down the road for me) to the (relatively) sleepy YHZ with only a tenth as many movements (and a twentieth the number of passengers)?

SEA fortunately hasn't had a major incident since 1956 (NW flight 2).

However, my old home airport, LGA, has a much more chequered history.

There were two major USAair crashes there when I was a teenager, and many minor incidents, including one I witnessed first hand in 1996 from a window seat on a CO 737. The aftermath:

BMI 734 at East Midlands Airport, 1989.

Sadly a horrific loss of 47 lives and multiple serious injuries to others.

This Wiki link shows the aerial photo of just how close to the runway they got before the aircraft came down on the M1 motorway embankment.

Considering GVA is one of the oldest airports in Europe still operating at the original site (opened in 1919), I can't think of any serious fatal accidents involving fatalities. The worst one that comes to mind was an Egyptair 707 that landed short of the runway in October 1982 and eventually came to rest with one wing separated.

There have been a few other minor incidents. A KLM Fokker 100 had the left main landing gear collapse while landing in 1989, and an IB MD-87 diverted to GVA in 1999 when the nose gear wouldn't extend.

The first ever crash at Birmingham was in January 2002 when a Challenger crashed on take off, the pilots never requested de-icing despite freezing conditions the night before. A wing dipped on TO and it hit the runway causing it to flip over, no survivors.
I actually saw this happen from my bedroom that sort of overlooks the centre of the runway, ot nice at all.

In Feb 2006 a Mahan air A310 Somehow ended up being 162 feet above the ground 6NM from the threshold, They commenced a missed approach and landed safely on the 2nd attempt.

In June 2006 a TNT 737 Made an emergeny landing with failed landing gear shutting the airport for some time. It was scheduled to arrive at Stansted but diverted to EMA due to fog, the pilots performed a full auto approach which somehow disengaged and the plane deviated from is path resulting in the right main gear being torn off.
It then dirverted to BHX and performed an emergency landing with missing gear, see the video shot Blythe West Midlans Police helicopter.

In Nov 2010 a Citation crashed in thick fog on landing after crashing into what I remember was ILS equiptment. It was an ambulance flight delivering a liver. It shut the airport till the afternoon the next day. I was in the airport at the time and we was all watching the news roll in on the TV and people looking out the windows to try and see, but the fog was too thick. All of the flights were slowly cancelled including my Air France 146 flight to Paris.

My home airport is TFN, so sadly there's too much to say about mayor accidents. On the other hand, they have been very commented.

But my father is a survivor of the not so well known first major crash that happened there, when an IB L-1049 Superconstellation crashed in a second landing try in very poor visibilty, with 33 dead and 15 survivors.

On Christmas Eve 1965, a DC3 belonging to British United Airways crashed short of the runway at Jersey (Channel Islands) in fog, below the airline's minima; it was carrying 24 passengers and 3 crew; the aircraft was destroyed on impact and all but 1 (a stewardess) were killed.

As it happens, I went to the airport on my bike today and my route takes me right past the approach light structures near the 27 threshold, where the DC3 came down.

There was another crash, involving a Citation, in c.1980; both crewmembers were killed in that incident.

At CDG I can think of AF4590, which crashed minutes after take off just outside the airport. Sadly, 113 persons lost their lives that day, and this crash was the key event leading to the end of civilian supersonic transport - until the next aircraft arrives of course.

I'm sure there are others though.

Luckily, nothing


In recent years (2007), Scandinavian Dash 8-402 with no casualties (opted for VNO instead of PLQ because of better safety equipment)

In 1973, Tu-124, CCCP-45061 departed from VNO and crashed near VKO, 51/51 fatalities because of 2 mechanical failures (the whole elite of Lithuanian pediatrists perished in this disaster)

In 1970, Tu-124, CCCP-45012 flew ROV-VNO and crashed inflight under unclear circumstances, 37/37 casualties.

My home airport, Madrid-Barajas, has seen several big accidents during it's long history.

The most recent one occured in August 20th, 2008, when a Spanair MD-82 (EC-HFP) crashed during takeoff, killing 154 passengers and crew.

Before that, the latest big accident had occured in December 7th, 1983. On that foggy and snowy morning, an Iberia B727-200 (EC-CFJ) and an Aviaco DC-9 (EC-CGS) collided on the ground when the Aviaco crew entered the active runway by mistake and with very low visibility while the Iberia 727 was rolling for takeoff. 93 people died (51 on Iberia and 42 on Aviaco).

And only 10 days before that (November 27th, 1983) , an Avianca B747-200 (HK-2910) had crashed in the nearby town of Mejorada Del Campo (7,5 mi/12km away from the airport) during approach, killing 181 people.

Another 747 (Imperial Iranian Air Force - IIAF. Reg. 5-8104) crashed in 1976 while approaching MAD in heavy weather and after being struck by lightning. All occupants (17 people) were killed.

Of course, we're not taking into account here all the minor incidents that have occured at this airport during all these years.

15FEB1961: Flight SN548 during approach, Boeing 707-329 en route from IDL to BRU, all died during the crash. The cause of the crash was left open however the FAA was determined that a problem with the stabilizer adjusting mechanism was the cause of the crash. OO-SJB, the plane that crashed was at that point only 2 years old. This crash happened in the vicinity of BRU and not on the airport itself.

29AUG1998: Flight SN542 inbound from JFK collapsed through its right side landing gear seconds after landing. No injuries nor fatalities. The cause of the plane was determined due fatigue of the landing gear due stressful operations. The plane was a A340-200 and was registered OO-SCW.

05MAY2006: No real crash but due a heavy fire in a maintenance hangar at BRU, 4 planes were destroyed. One Lockheed C-130 of the Belgian Air Force and 3 Airbus A320's (from Armavia, Hellas Jet and Armenian International Airways) were damaged beyond repair.

25MAY2008: A Kallita Air Boeing 747-200F overran the runway during an aborted take-off. The plane was registered N704CK. No serious injures, the plane broke in 3 pieces during the event. Since the plane carried a lot of diplomatic cargo (about half of the 76 ton load) it took a while to remove the cargo and the wreckage. Cause of the crash was the rejected take-off after passing V1 speed.

That's about it for BRU I guess... Which isn't to bad since the opening of BRU in 1940 (before that it was located somewhere else)

Quoting PHX787 (Reply 5):
PHX: None that I know of recently.

The big guys just leave it to the GA pilots to CFIT every other month, then sue the FAA because they crashed into a mountain trying to stay below the class bravo because it's "dangerous"  

Having that said, it's damn near impossible to crash in PHX. With a half dozen airfields (at least) capable of handling a 737 and six 10k+ runways -- not to mention several freeways that could double for a runway -- something seriously catastrophic would have to happen to crash. Oh yeah, and we're VFR 360 days a year.
