Like every year at the same period, I'm back on this forum, to remember the accident of Avianca flight 011. it was during the night of november 27th, 1983, the Avianca Boeing 747-283B combi, registered HK-2910X was operating the route Paris-Madrid-Caracas-Bogota.
After 90 minutes flying from Paris-CDG airport, the airliner was preparing for landing in Madrid-Barajas airport, and sadly crashed at only 45 seconds from its landing on RWY 33.
181 persons died including the crew, and 11 passengers survived.
