First Ever Crash For Each Aircraft Type

Sat Jul 21, 2007 10:54 pm

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.

I think the first A-330 accident was an Airbus Industrie aircraft wich crashed in Egypt during a flight test but I can't find the date and exact location. All on board (test crew) were killed.

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.

The first MD-80 lost in an accident was one of the manufacturer prototypes.

And the first MD-80 lost in commercial service was an Inex Adria Airways aircraft (YU-ANA).

The first and so far only MD-90 accident was an UNI Air aircraft at HUN that suffered a cabin explosion.

Puzzling info.
The A300 destroyed at Kuala Lumpur on Dec. 18th 1983 is MSN 122 OY-KAA of SAS on lease to MAS.

Beware of the databases. They usually log all hull losses which are not necessarily crashes as intended by FlySSC.

The first 737 Classic (733, 734, 735) crash was in 1989, BMA, a B734, 47 fatalities of 126 on board, in Kegworth UK, G-OBME, where one engine failed and the crew accidentally shut down the other engine, leaving the plane with no engines operating. Crashed near the airport.

The first 737 NG (736, 73G, 738, 739) crash was last year, Gol, a B738, 154 fatalities of 154 on board, in the Amazon, PR-GTD, which was the mid-air collision.

Incorrect. WN holds that honor at MDW N471WN (737-7H4) in 2005 with one fatality. Fortunately, it is back in service today but with a different tail number.

That's why I'm wondering if this can really be taken into account in this thread  Wink. Any guesses ? Aviation-safety.net considers it as an incident, which btw occurred December 8th, 2005.

No, this one was in 1999, September IIRC, while the first B757,accident, as already mentionned, was the AA flight in Colombia in December 1995. But in fact, the very first B757 destroyed was a China Southern aircraft that was waiting to take off at CAN in 1990 when it was hit by another aircraft.

And Convair 990:

May 30, 1963, N5616, American Airlines, EWR (empty aircraft caught fire on the ground). First actual Convair 990 crash was May 28, 1968, PK-GJA, Garuda. Crashed 5 minutes after takeoff from BOM. All 29 aboard fatal plus 1 on the ground.

No photos of either aircraft but here's one of N5617, and another of AA's 20 990s in the background. Very brief AA service, only 4 to 7 years. All delivered 1962-63 and sold 1966-69.

Quoting OceansWorld (Reply 36):
Aviation-safety.net considers it as an incident, which btw occurred December 8th, 2005.

There was a fatality which still considers it as an accident/crash.

The original was TMI...sorry.

Not doubting the info. posted here, just wanted to know when the Braniff 707-227 crashed on its test-flight. I didn't know if it was right around this time or not.

The venerable IL-86 has only had one in-flight crash resulting from an uncommanded stabilizer deflection in 2002. The IL-96 has had no in-flight crashes. Three IL-86s have been involved in ground accidents and only one resulted in fatalities (outside the plane).

October 19, 1959. It was the 2nd 707 hull loss (4 fatalities and 4 survivors). That one doesn't appear in Braniff's accident record since it wasn't due for delivery until a day or two later so it was still owned by Boeing at the time of the accident. A Braniff captain was at the controls however.

Quoting SIBILLE (Reply 16):
I think the first A-330 accident was an Airbus Industrie aircraft wich crashed in Egypt during a flight test but I can't find the date and exact location. All on board (test crew) were killed.

The accident you refer in Egypt was an Airbus A300, not A330.
It occurred in Luxor, Egypt on Sept.21st 1987. Egyptair A300 SU-BCA. Crashed during training cession.

Quoting Ned Kelly (Reply 23):
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

Actually, before the MAS A300 in Dec.1983, I found another accident involving an A300, probably the very first one :

Dec.1981 . Airbus A300 of Cruzero (PP-CLA ?) in Porto Alegre/Brazil :

Assume 1969 is a typo. It should read 1960

Typo.

Sorry !

Quoting Christopherwoo (Reply 37):
Was the Brittania 757 crash earlier than 1995? The one where it skidded off the runway and ended up in 3 pieces?



Quoting OHLHD (Reply 30):
No, earlier already. AA757 on approach to Cali.

Actually, though not a real "crash", the first B757 involved in a fatal accident was China Southwest's B757 B-2812, on Oct. 2nd 1990 in Guanghzou, China : The aircraft was struck by a Xiamen Airlines B737 that went out of control on landing due to being hijacked.

Come to think of it I believe both the 777 and A340 have zero fatalities after more than 13 years of service. Amazing

Pretty amazing indeed if you look at the numbers of B777 flying these days. Also, the A340 could be out numbered and did crash once, still a nice service history.

Nice work FlySSC

Also, one for the Fokker F-50

I think the 737 should be counted three times, as the series (Jurassic, Classic, Next Generation) are quite different.

As mentioned above, this was in Toulouse. No fatalities in service for the 330 though.

Still no fatalities for either though.

Well FlySSC, if you now talk about accidents and not anymore crashes with ac write-off, then yes A300 MSN 109 PP-CLA went off the runway at Porto Alegre on Dec. 7th, 1981. Although the damages were important, the ac was repaired and flew with Cruzeiro till early '90.
