Quoting chootie (Reply 18): Their was a Scandinavian Airlines DC-10 off the runway at JFK. Forgot the details, but I think it was late 80´s or early 90´s.
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.
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.

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.
Quoting kiwiinoz (Reply 22): The Air Canada DC-9 that caught fire after landing....somewhere. Lives were lost.
Mentioned in Reply 7.
Quoting AS737MAX (Reply 27): To clear this up, my main question was what other international airlines has accidents/incidents on US Soil
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.
