The OZ214 crash got me thinking, what other Airlines had crashes on US soil, and 2
came to mind:

KE801 @ GUM: http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Korean_Air_Flight_801

and

AV52 @ JFK: http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Avianca_Flight_52

Are there any more? Obviously before the Jet-Age?

That JAL DC-8 that landed in the bay just short of SFO.


A landing EVERYONE can walk away from, is a good landing.

Aeromexico DC-9 in Cerritos, California in 1986. Flight 598, collided with a Piper Archer and crashed into the ground killing 82 people.


The biggest mistake made by most human beings: Listening to only half, understanding just a quarter and telling double.

Ironically JL DC8s had 3 different incidents in/around the bay area:

April 25th, 1961: Overrun
December 25th, 1965: Engine #1 suffers uncontained explosion, diverts to OAK
December 22nd, 1968: Landed short of the runway

Didn't something also happen at SFO where a 747 rolled and the pilots regained control?

Not a pax aircraft I know, but a now defunct British freight carrier, Redcoat Air Cargo lost a Britannia in Boston in 1980

From Wikipedia: On 16 February 1980 a Bristol Britannia C Mk.1, registered G-BRAC, crashed after departure from Boston-Logan due to ice and snow on the aircraft; seven of the eight crew died

SR111 crashed in Canada, close to Halifax. So not US soil, as asked by the OP.

Forgot AM's DC9, MS990 is an interesting debate nonetheless, AC797 was a DC9? And SR111 was off the coast of Peggy's Cove, Nova Scotia enroute JFK-ZRH

Misleading post title - unintentionally sensationalistic? A question mark at the end would solve the problem.

Didn't crash at all, thankfully.

This flight from Mexico proves that AS is an international airline, and so complies with the thread title...   

But we all knew that was not what the OP meant.

A more accurate title would be "Non-US Airline Crashes On US Soil?"

True.

Also, some of the responses are getting answered by "this was in international waters" and "it happened in Halifax",

Maybe the OP ultimately meant "handled by US Authorities" ie. "being on US soil or international waters and handled by the NTSB or something to that effect",

I mean, who DID handle the Swissair Crash, since it was a US to Switzerland flight, but I guess going down technically in Halifax?

Who would handle the Egyptair flight going down in international waters then?

That was earlier than late '80s (1984) and since the aircraft didn't crash but overrun the runway it can't count as a crash on US soil. That DC-10 went on to fly with FedEx and it still does today as an MD-10.

The Air Canada DC-9 that caught fire after landing....somewhere. Lives were lost.

Wasn't there a Columbian 707 that ran out of fuel on approach and crashed as well. Forget which airport
