Following the recent accident of the Aerorepublica ERJ190 at Santa Marta, I tried to make a list of the first ever crash/accident for each aircraft type.
Probably forgot many of them, but here is what I found :

That was not really a crash/accident.

It happened to AF's A342 F-GNIA, in January 1994. After the completion of an A-check the aircraft was pulled from the maintenance hangar to the terminal at Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport. At that moment a fire broke out. The airport fire services were not able prevent the aircraft from being damaged beyond repair by the fire. PROBABLE CAUSE: Overheat and fire of the yellow hydraulic electric pump operating the aircraft cargo doors on ground with the engines off.

Just a small problem here.

Mandarin Airlines is a subsidary of China Airlines from Taiwan. Air China bases itself in PEK and PVG and of course is from the PRC.

Would I be right in thinking the first accident involving the Boeing 767 would be the Gimli Glider, the AC flight from Montreal to Edmonton that ran out of fuel over Winnipeg? The aircraft suffered a nose gear collapse on landing at the unused airstrip at Gimli, near Winnipeg.

Also, first accident of an Airbus A340 - if you're not counting the fire that destroyed the one mentioned above - could be listed as the Virgin Atlantic aircraft that suffered a gear malfunction in the 1990s and had to land on one main gear and nose gear only.

Two notable omissions....

B757 & 767

I wont pretend to have any accurate info on this, was the first accident involving a 767 a Lauda Air flight where a fault led to one engine engaging it's thrust reverser while in flight?

Here you have all 767 accidents. The first listed is the Gimli Glider however the first major crash was Lauda-Air in 1991.

Nope, it has a perfect safety record. Come to think of it I believe both the 777 and A340 have zero fatalities after more than 13 years of service. Amazing. Of course the Concorde flew for 30 years before having it's first (and last) fatalities but that doesn't really compare as there were just a dozen or so flying around.

The United DC8 (N8013U) is probably a typo with the year, I believe this aircraft crashed in 1960. The MAS A300B was on lease from SAS at the time of the accident and was using the registration OY-KAA. Can anyone confirm the first 737 was not involved in an accident until 1970?

There has been one fatality involving a 777, at DEN some years back a fueller IIRC didnt ground the a/c properly and the ensuing fire damaged a good chunk of one of the wings and killed the fueller.
