the Aviation year 2004 didn't started that well!
It began with Flash Airlines (737-3Q8, SU-ZCF) on the 3th of January. 103 people got killed, mostly French!
On the 10th of February a Kish Air Fokker F-50 (EP-LCA) crashed near Sharjah, United Arab Emirates.
Further we had smaller incidents, like over run runway etc.
But my question: DO we already know what happened with those 2 flights?
And does anyone has of list of ALL! major, like ment above, and smaller accidents this year (maybe with causes also?)? From the plane with engine trouble in Munich (Austrian F-70) till the minor accident in Aberdeen this week (with the nosewheel)
I know, I'm asking you a lot, but come on
FlightS in the next 3 months: MSP, PHX, MEM, NCE, TFS, BCN. All round trips from AMS

Last thing I heard in the Kish Air is that it was an uncommanded propeller reversal but as to what made it happen is yet to be solved. Causes usually take a year before conclusive evidence is found and verified. You can't hurry an investigation but you sure can slow one down.
Less sarcasm and more thought equal better understanding
