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?

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.

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.

British Commonwealth Pacific Airlines (BCPA) 304
On October 29, 1953, British Commonwealth Pacific Airlines Flight 304 crashed near Woodside, California on approach into SFO. The DC-6 was flying Sydney - Nadi - Canton Island - Honolulu - San Francisco - Vancouver. All 19 passengers and crew died. The probable cause of the crash was the failure of the crew to follow prescribed procedures for an instrument approach.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BCPA_Flight_304

Linee Aeree Italiane 451
On December 18, 1954, Linee Aeree Italiane 451 crashed on its 4th attempt to land at New York-Idlewild when it struck the pier which supported the left row of runway 04 slope line approach lights. The DC-6 was flying Rome-Ciampino - Milan - Paris - Shannon - Gander - Boston - New York. Of the 32 people on board, only 6 passengers survived. The probable cause was an erratic approach which resulted in a descent to an altitude too low to avoid striking the pier. A contributing factor to this accident was pilot fatigue due to the particular and difficult circumstances.

SAS 933
On January 13, 1969, Scandinavian Airlines System Flight 933 crashed into Santa Monica Bay on approach to LAX. The DC-8 was flying Copenhagen - Seattle/Tacoma - Los Angeles. Of the 45 people onboard, 3 Flight Attendants and 15 passengers died in the crash. The lack of crew coordination and the inadequate monitoring of the aircraft position in space during a critical phase of an instrument approach which resulted in an unplanned descent into the water. Contributing to this unplanned descent was an apparent unsafe landing gear condition induced by the design of the landing gear indicator lights, and the omission of the minimum crossing altitude at an approach fix depicted on the approach chart.

You'll find the Canadian Transportation Safety Board report on SR111 here. The PDF file was slow to download (about 340 pages). You can also access the report in HTML format in links at the bottom.

Still a little confusing due to the reference to "international airlines" which includes almost all major U.S. carriers if they operate international routes. I assumed you were referring to airlines based in countries other than the U.S. I think that's what most others are assuming also.
