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...

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.

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.

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:

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.

BHX:

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.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ry48f...FPX4Y&feature=youtube_gdata_player

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.

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.

BRU:

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)

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.

AA191 - Flight 191 was a regularly scheduled passenger flight from O'Hare International Airport in Chicago, Illinois, to Los Angeles International Airport. On May 25, 1979, the McDonnell Douglas DC-10-10 operating the flight crashed moments after takeoff from Chicago. All 258 passengers and 13 crew on board were killed, along with two people on the ground. Until the September 11 attacks, it was the deadliest air disaster in the history of the United States. It remains the deadliest aviation accident to occur on U.S. soil, as well as the second deadliest involving a DC-10, after Turkish Airlines Flight 981.1057 fatalities have occurred as a result of accidents en route to or from Chicago O'Hare.

On February 9, 1998, American Airlines Flight 1340 crashed upon landing in Chicago from Kansas City International Airport injuring 22 passengers.

On October 31, 1994, American Eagle Flight 4184 crashed over northwestern Indiana en route from Indianapolis to Chicago, killing all 68 people on board.

On September 8, 1994, USAir Flight 427 crashed on approach to Pittsburgh, PA, after departing O'Hare, killing all 132 people on board.

On August 10, 1986, American Trans Air Flight 131 exploded on the tarmac at O'Hare, destroying the plane.

On March 19, 1982, a USAF KC-135 crashed upon approach to O'Hare 40 miles (64 km) northwest of the city (near Woodstock), killing 27 people on board.

On March 28, 1977, Douglas C-47A N57131 of Emery Worldwide was destroyed by fire following a taxiing accident. The aircraft was due to operate a cargo flight.

On December 20, 1972, North Central Airlines Flight 575 crashed upon takeoff, killing 10 passengers.

On December 27, 1968, North Central Airlines Flight 458 crashed into a hangar at O'Hare, killing 27 onboard and one on the ground.

On March 21, 1968 United Airlines Flight 9963 a Boeing 727 overran runway 09R on take off. None of the 3 crew on board were killed but injured and the aircraft was damaged beyond repair.

On August 16, 1965, United Airlines Flight 389 crashed 30 miles (48 km) east of O'Hare while on approach, killing all 30 onboard.

You're probably right. Must have been thinking of something else. Re that incident, I always wondered why they didn't request that flight to go to an airport with more than one runway to make its emergency landing. There are many not far away. I remember that day, a busy Saturday during the ski season and it obviously shut down the airport for several hours resulting in major delays and cancellations. Weekends during the ski season are normally by far the busiest days at GVA with dozens of charter flights. And the weather was good so there's no reason it couldn't have diverted somewhere else with more than one runway where it would have been less disruptive.

ATL - I do not think that there has every been a crash on the field except in the 1980's when an Eastern Air Lines 727 landing on 26R landed on top of a private plane. No one was killed on the EA flight but the private plane was not so lucky. There have been numerous flights either bound to ATL or departing from ATL that were lost in flight such as the Southern DC-9 SO242 from HSV that crashed in New Hope, GA, or the Midwest Express DC-9 that crashed on take-off from MKE bound for ATL or the ValuJet DC-9 that crashed into the Everglades after an onboard fire VJ592 MIA-ATL. I know there were others such as a Capital Vickers from LGA-ATL that crashed in Chase, MD and an Eastern prop with Captain Eddie Rickenbacker that crashed in Morrow, GA (he survived but was hurt badly), and a Piedmont 727 that collided with a private plane in Henderson, NC. There have been others as well. I think that a Delta DC-8 on a training flight did crash near the ATL airport in the 1960's killing the crew. I am not sure exactly where but would be interested to know where it came to rest. Cannot think of anything else but I am sure there are others and if I have mistaken something please correct me.

BDL...November 12, 1995: Very near disaster aboard AA flight 1572. Due to an improper altimeter setting, the MD-80 came in too low and began to clip trees short of the runway. The pilot managed to gain altitude but lost power on both engines. The aircraft then struck an ILS antenna and set down very hard on the runway. Only one injury but the plane was damaged to the tune of 9 million dollars. A few feet lower and the flight would have ended in a disasterous CFIT.

The MK Airlines 747-200 accident mentioned in the original post....that flight originated at BDL.

There was also an accident involving a 727 cargo plane quite a few years ago. While on its takeoff roll, and engine blew apart and the plane burned. The crew escaped and the 727 ended up being used as a fire and rescue training tool.

British Airtours 737 had an engine failure on take off in 1985. The fire in the engine quickly engulfed the fuselage and sadly 54 people lost their lives due to smoke inhalation. I believe this crash was one of the major factors in replacing all interiors with fire resistant materials.

A British European Airways Viscount crashed on approach in 1957, killing everyone on-board.

A British Midland Airways Argonaut crashed on approach in 1967 due to fuel starvation, killing 72 of 84 people.

There are more but i have to head out, but the above shows a quick run down of accidents over the years.

In the 60ies a Noratlas crashed west of the airport during landing. Does anybody know more about this accident?

Thankfully at my home airport and current place of employment MCO Orlando International - no major commercial aircraft crashes. However in the late 1970s, back when this was still an Air Force Base there was a B-52 crash that killed 7 crew members and 1 kid on the ground when the plane tried to return to base after a fire.

Also a B-47 flown by Colonel McCoy, who the AFB was later named after and why Orlando still has the MCO code crashed northwest of Downtown Orlando after taking off from then Pine Castle AFB which became McCoy then Orlando International


Now where I grew up:

DTW Detroit

Northwest flight 255 in August 1987 - MD-80 crashed due to improper setting of flaps killing 153 onboard and 2 on the ground, a little 5 year old girl the only survivor

in 1990 two Northwest aircraft a DC-9 and a 727 had a runway collision when the DC-9 mistakenly turned on the runway thinking it was a taxiway in heavy fog. No one hurt on the 727, 9 killed on the DC-9

In 1997 - a Comair 3272 Emb-120 inbound to DTW crashed in a field 10 miles south on approach due to icing killing around 30

In March1987 - a Northwest Airlink flt 2268 CASA 212 crashed while landing at DTW due to pilot error killing 9 out of 19 people on board

Jan 11 1983 - United Cargo DC-8-54F N8053U crashed on take off into a field due to pilot error killing pilot and co pilot.

My current home airport is SFO...the first incidents that readily come to mind are:

A Flying Tiger Line Constellation went into Sweeney Ridge just west of the airport shortly after takeoff in 1964, killing all three occupants.

A JL DC-8 landed in the water about 3 miles short of the 28's in 1968; no serious injuries and the plane was salvaged and went back into service.

A PA 747-121 (Clipper 845) tried to take off on 01R in 1971, in spite of being too heavy to take off with that short of a runway, and ended up taking out the ALS on the north end of the runway...turned around and landed safely although 10 people were seriously injured by poles piercing the fuselage, and everyone discovered for the first time that a 747 with damaged body gear will end up resting on its tail. I have a picture of this bird sitting on her tail after the incident in my copy of "Emergency!: Crisis in the Cockpit", but can't find the pic online.

These incidents didn't happen at the airport, but AS 261 and UA 93 were both en-route to SFO...actually, one of my former colleagues was supposed to pick up a client who was coming in on UA 93.

My former home airport was SJC...to my knowledge, there haven't been any incidents/accidents at the airport itself, but FedEx 705, a DC-10 that suffered an attempted hijacking, was en-route MEM-SJC.

'My' airport is EWR as part of my screen name refers to. There appears to be 5 major crashes on or near EWR. I do not incude the 9/11 flights from EWR or the Coglan Air crash from EWR that crashed near BUF. From Wikipedia:

On 16 Dec 1951 a passenger C-46 lost a cylinder on takeoff from runway 28 and crashed in Elizabeth, killing 56.

On 22 Jan 1952 an American Airlines Convair on approach to runway 6 crashed in Elizabeth, killing 30.

On 11 Feb 1952 a National DC-6 crashed in Elizabeth after takeoff from runway 24, killing 33.[29]

April 18, 1979: New York Airways Commuter helicopter on a routine flight to Laguardia and JFK Airports plunged 150 feet (46 m) into the area between Runways 4L/22R and 4R/22L killing 3 passengers and injuring 15. It was later determined the crash was due to a failure in the helicopter's tail rotor.[1]

July 31, 1997: FedEx Flight 14, a McDonnell Douglas MD-11, crashed during landing from Anchorage International Airport. The No. 3 engine contacted the runway during a rough landing which caused the aircraft to flip upside down, after which it was destroyed by fire. The two crewmembers and three passengers escaped uninjured.[30]

Considering that EWR is one of the oldest commercial scheduled airline airports in the USA (1928), the record is quite good. The series of crashes in 1951-1952 caused the suspension of commercial airserice for a number of months and service was reinstated as ATC and other improvements were made at the airport and with airliners. The suspension also helped JFK (then Idlewild) and LGA as the picked up business.

Not as big as a B737, but at GEG back in 1992 a SAL Air DC-3 crashed after takeoff. The #2 engine failed and according to the FAA report, the pilot tried to turn the aircraft around too fast and stalled. The FAA said had the pilot not paniced, he could have brought the DC-3 back around and in for a safe landing using a longer base. Not sure how good of condition the SAL Air DC-3 was in, but I know when Desert Air Cargo was running cargo to BFI for UPS their DC-3 threw jugs all the time. It was an ex Reeve Alleution DC-3 and was still painted red, white and blue.

Cartagena, Colombia (CTG/SKCG)

JAN 15 1966: A C-54B operated by Avianca took off, climbed to 70 feet and then started to descent and struck the sea (Cartagena's only runway has both ends over the water), From the 60 occupants, just 4 died. On a side note, one flight attendant who survivied the crash, died two years later in a car accident. Fate has a very twisted sense of humor.

JAN 10 1995: A DC-9-14 operated by Intercontinental de Aviación crashed on Maria la Baja (a town located a few kilometers away in the final approach path to CTG), due to a failure in the altimeter caused by a bad maintenance carried out on the electrical system. From the 52 souls on board, a 9 years old little girl was the only survivor, wich was saved by the foliage over the water at the crash site. The funny side of the story: The black boxes were stolen by the inhabitants from Maria la Baja (people with low levels of education by the time) and were found few days later decorating the living room in a house

Of course two 9/11 hijackers started their journey at PWM.

A Douglas A-26 crashed into a neighborhood at PWM back in 1944. 19 dead, 20 injured. Worst accident in Maine history.

And 2 years ago a YAK-52 crashed just after takeoff from PWM, killing two. The pilot was a long time controller at PWM and was well known and liked. I witnessed that crash, very tough to see.

Only two major accidents involving fatatlieis, first was back in 1968 when a Canadian Pacific 707 overran the runway and hit a building killing 1 crew member.

Second was two years later in 1970 when an AC Viscount collied with a light aircraft on approach, the pilot of which died.

The only other fatal crash involving a larger type was an Air North DC3 in 1995 which killed 1/3 crew and in the same year a Canadian DC10 overran the runway with no fatalties.

In recent years, there have only been fatalities with smaller types (Piper Seneca, Piper Navajo & Beech King Air 100).

and possibly also the RAF Nimrod that crashed during the CNE Airshow in 2005, if in fact it used YYZ as a base (not sure...).

As for my other airport (YYT)... I can't think of a major crash that happened there, or even related to it. A 737 runway over-run a few years back. Given the winds and terrain, that's quite remarkable (just yesterday I was reading a post by Longhauler about the terrain on approach to YYT).

GVA:

Two Air India crashes onto the Bossons glacier near Mont Blanc. First a Lockheed Constellation in 1950, then a 707 in 1966.


An addition to BSL:

Not a "major" crash, but a personal tragedy nevertheless: Hans Georg Schmid, a former Swissair MD-11 captain, wanted to fly BSL - OSH nonstop to honor Charles Lindbergh in 2007 on an experimental aircraft (HB-YMN). He was under financial pressure to do that flight (sponsoring issues) and did not perform test flights to determine a reasonable MTOW.

He was told to abort take-off if not airborne after about 3000 ft, but still used the full runway length (12800 ft). Overweight, tail-heavy and after 12500 ft of flight distance, he collided with an apartment building.

An absurd loss of life, given the simple precautions that could have spared it.

MIA has had some interesting ones. Thankfully nothing major for a while now.

Near or at MIA:

On February 12, 1963, Northwest Orient Airlines Flight 705 crashed into the Everglades while en route from Miami to Portland, Oregon via Chicago O'Hare, Spokane, and Seattle.

On June 23, 1969, a Dominicana Air Lines DC-4, en route to Santo Domingo was circling back to Miami International Airport with an engine fire when it crashed onto 36th Street. 5 dead; 7 injured.[40]

On December 29, 1972, Eastern Air Lines Flight 401, a Lockheed L-1011, crashed into the Everglades. The plane had left JFK International Airport in New York City bound for Miami. (the subject of Hollywood movie, The Ghost Of Flight 401).

On 15 January 1977, Douglas DC-3 N73KW of Air Sunshine crashed shortly after take-off on a domestic scheduled passenger flight to Key West International Airport, Florida. All 33 people on board survived.[41]

On May 11, 1996, ValuJet Flight 592, a DC-9, crashed into the Everglades after take-off from Miami en route to Atlanta.

On August 7, 1997, Fine Air 101, a Douglas DC-8 cargo plane, crashed onto NW 72nd Avenue less than a mile (1.6 km) from the airport.

Some other well known notable incidents and accidents that have MIA involvement
On December 7, 2005, forty-four year old Rigoberto Alpizar, a passenger aboard American Airlines Flight 924, claimed to have a bomb in his carry-on luggage while boarding the flight's second leg to Orlando, Florida after arriving on a flight from Quito, Ecuador; the flight had just arrived from Medellín, Colombia. Federal air marshals reportedly shot and killed the man in the jetway of Gate D42 as he attempted to escape the plane after being confronted onboard, marking the first time an air marshal has fired a weapon on or near an airplane.

Quoting NASCARAirforce (Reply 55):
Well if you count Denver Stapleton, there was a Continental DC-9 that crashed there in the late 1980s with fatalities

Stapleton actually was actually a pretty ill-fated airport, relatively speaking. Several incidents occured there or on flights to/from(old)DEN.

(Below is all copied from Wiipedia)

On October 6, 1955, United Airlines Flight 409, a Douglas DC-4 propliner, was a scheduled flight departing from Denver, Colorado to Salt Lake City, Utah. The aircraft crashed into Medicine Bow Peak, near Centennial, Wyoming, killing all 66 people on board (63 passengers, 3 crew members.) The victims included five female members of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, and military personnel. At the time, this was the deadliest airline crash in U.S. commercial aviation history.

On November 1, 1955, United Airlines Flight 629, a Douglas DC-6B airliner, exploded over nearby Longmont while en route to Portland, Oregon and Seattle, Washington from Stapleton, killing all 44 persons aboard. John "Jack" Gilbert Graham was found to have planted a dynamite bomb in a suitcase that was loaded onto the plane, to murder his mother in revenge for the way she treated him as a child. He was executed two years after Flight 629 exploded.

On July 11, 1961, United Airlines Flight 859, a DC-8-12 tail number N8040U, was destroyed after landing. Asymmetric thrust on engines 1 & 2 (left wing) forced a loss of control on the runway. The aircraft struck a maintenance vehicle, killing the driver. In the ensuing disaster, 17 of the DC-8's 122 occupants died.

On August 7, 1975, Continental Airlines Flight 426 crashed due to windshear after taking off and climbing to 100 feet (30 m) on runway 35L. Nobody was killed in the accident.

On November 16, 1976, a Texas International DC-9-10 aircraft stalled after takeoff at Stapleton and crashed. The 81 passengers and 5 crewmembers suffered a total of 14 injured, but there were no deaths.

On December 28, 1978, United Airlines Flight 173, which departed from Stapleton, ran out of fuel while circling near Portland, Oregon, as the crew investigated landing gear problems. The DC-8-61 jetliner's fuel supply was exhausted after the crew decided to "go-around" one more time prior to landing. The plane subsequently crashed in a wooded residential neighborhood southeast of the Portland airport. Ten of the plane's 189 occupants were killed.

On November 15, 1987, Continental Airlines Flight 1713, a DC-9-14 jetliner bound for Boise, Idaho, crashed on takeoff at Stapleton during a snowstorm. The probable cause of the crash was the failure of the flight crew to have the aircraft de-iced prior to take-off and the over-rotation of the aircraft on take-off. Twenty-eight of the plane's 82 occupants were killed.

On July 19, 1989, United Airlines Flight 232, a DC-10-10, crash-landed at the Sioux City, Iowa, airport on a flight which originated at Stapleton. Flight 232 experienced a catastrophic engine failure over Alta, Iowa, on a flight to Chicago, Illinois. 112 of the plane's 296 occupants died.

On March 3, 1991, United Airlines Flight 585 was on final approach to Colorado Springs Municipal Airport from Stapleton when the 737-200 spun out of control. All 20 passengers and 5 crew were killed

This was a PHX bound flight, and the anniversaries of this crash still get quite a bit of Phoenix TV news and print newspaper coverage here. 110 souls lost on board were from Arizona. There is a memorial for these victims located near Phoenix City Hall.

The pilots were able to return to DTW safely.

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).


I also remember one June an Eastern 727 flew through a micro burst on short final for 22r...all were killed as the airframe broke apart rolling across Rockaway Blvd. I had been there but without camera. My cousin was a local first responder, went to pull a burning woman away from the wreckage her arm came off in his hands...He left the force after that day. JFK had Egypt Air 767, Swissair 111, TWA800, AA 587 and many other accidents, incidents, many unpublished in the press.

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

Yes, and one of the most unusual accidents, too. A DC-6A, Northeast Airlines-823 departed LGA Rwy 04 (destination was MIA), in a snow storm, then turned left heading over Rikers Island were it crashed on 1 Feb. 1957. There were about 101 passengers and crew aboard of which some 21 were killed. But fast thinking inmates and guards at Rikers rescued most of the passengers. Many of these inmates were later given pardons by the Governor of New York.

The NE-823 accident was ruled a CFIT.

My first post, please be kind  

MKC had a lot before I was around.
T&WA 599 3/31/31 outbound for LA and points in between. Knute Rockne the famous Notre Dame coach among those killed.
T&WA 3 1/16/42 outbound for LA and points in between crashed into a mountain after departing Las Vegas. Actress Carole Lombard killed. I read somewhere she left her purse behind at MKC and a T&WA worker found it only to learn she'd been killed as they were making arrangements to put it on the next flight.
TWA 2 6/30/56 LAX-MKC Super Constellation collided in midair over the Grand Canyon with United 718 LAX-MDW a DC-7.
Continental 11 5/22/62 ORD-MKC 707 bombed in an insurance fraud scheme.
Continental 12 7/1/65 LAX-MKC 707 hydroplaned off the runway and over the river levee breaking into 3 pieces. Miraculously everyone survived.
Braniff 250 8/6/66 MKC-OMA BAC 1-11 disintegrated in a thunderstorm. (Mentioned in passing recently on Mad Men)

MCI I know had a TWA Super Constellation divert to it in the 50's when it was Kansas City Industrial Airport after the plane couldn't lower its gear. There's a newsreel of it on YouTube. There have been two cargo accidents involving MCI but no passenger planes.

PHX and AZA are my airports now. I recall a bizjet about 20 years ago MKC-PHX lost braking after landing. Slid right across 24th street at high speed without hitting any cars. The road has been moved two blocks west since to accommodate runway expansion.

A friend of mine in college lost his parents on NW 255. Some time after that my parents were going to fly HNL-STL on a TWA 747 nonstop. That day TWA had a 767 LAX-STL make an emergency landing at Scott AFB. I think either that flight originated in HNL or was listed as a connection in the timetable. My father worked for TWA and they were pass riding so I had several anxious hours before confirming they weren't on the plane at Scott AFB.

I'm actually surprised that Sacramento International Airport (SMF) has never had a major accident considering the relatively short runways and the fact it took a LONG time for SMF to finally install Category III equipment for low-visibility landings.

I do know that Sacramento Executive Airport had one horrible tragedy: a privately-owned F-86 Sabre had trouble during its takeoff run and crashed into an ice cream parlour, killing 22 people. It resulted in the closure of one runway at SAC, and the shopping center where the ice cream parlour was located was eventually turned into offices for the Sacramento City Police and Fire Departments.

Quoting 9lflyguy (Reply 62):
American Airlines Flight 1420 was a flight fromDallas-Fort Worth International Airport to Little Rock National Airport in USA. On June 1, 1999, aMcDonnell Douglas MD-82 (registration numberN215AA) overran the runway upon landing inLittle Rock and crashed. Of the 145 people aboard, the captain and ten passengers died in the crash

9lflyguy stole my home airport. But I'll pick up where he left off. AA Flight 1420 basically over-ran the runway at LIT in adverse weather conditions, and the crew made several mistakes that contributed to the accident. They had already switched runway approach direction and should have called off the attempt to even land at the airport all together. They faced little visibility and some severe windshear, and the spoilers failed to deploy as well.

That's one that seems to get forgotten about since it was a training flight. My grandfather remembered that crash as he worked at ATL for Eastern and recalled see the wreckage.

Another crash of an a/c ultimately bound for ATL was AF 007, a 707 operating a charter flight from ORY to IDL to ATL that crashed shortly after take-off from ORY on June 3, 1962. 130 of the 132 onboard were killed, and a number of prominent Atlantans were on that flight, as they were returning from a month-long European art tour sponsored by the Atlanta Art Association. It's a tragedy that still resonates in Atlanta to this day, as the victims were memorialized by the building of the Atlanta Memorial Arts Center (Now called the Woodruff Arts Center after a major benefactor.) and by the Rodin sculpture "The Shade", which was donated by the French gov't in memorial to to the victims. In recent years, the crash has been referred to as "Atlanta's 9/11" due to the major impact had on the city.

My home airport has had several well known crashes attributed to it, including the worst air disaster in New Hampshire.

First was the Northeast Airlines flight 946
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northeast_Airlines_Flight_946

Crashed about 5 miles north of the airport on approach attributed to a wrongly set altimeter.

The second more notable crash here was the crash of a Learjet in 1996 that was missing for almost 3 years until some hunters found it in the woods. There were many stories and rumors about this plane and its pilots, including that they were smuggling drugs and stole the airplane.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1996_New_Hampshire_Learjet_crash

We have had numerous other fatal crashes of small aircraft including one back in February with a Cessna that crashed while attempting to land back at the airport. There is also the story of the last airshow in 1993 where a biplane collided with a skydiver decapitating him, and then crashing in a shopping center killing the pilot as well as the jumper.

14th of November, 1988 07:14 Wasawings Embraer EMB-110 Bandeirante which was coming from Helsinki on scheduled flight & was leased from Karair crashed on approach killing 6 people. Cause of the accident was decision to choose continuing approach on below limit visibility conditions, plane flew below glideslope and decision to go around was made too late. This airline had poor safety culture and it was standard for them to fly even in unsafe weather conditions and pilots were pressured to do so, they had one crash two years before though with no fatalities.
