I thimk that US Airways needs to sell all the old aircraft they have that would be a good thing.

If my memory serves me, the only old aircraft that USAir crashed was the DC-9 in Charlotte. The 737-300 at Pittsburgh wasn't old, and I think the two LaGuardia crashes were an F28 and a 737-400, and they're not really old, either.

United Crashes

Thu Mar 11, 1999 2:09 pm

Hey fly777ual,

Check out how many crashes had United since it was founded. And when you done, compare USAir with United. They are about the same age, USAir was founded in 1937 as a All American Aviation, and United was founded six years earlier in 1931( management company for four airlines: Varney Speed Lines, National Air Transport, Pacific Air and Boeing Air Transport)Dont count PSA and Piedmont as a part of USAir, only pure USAir, because they joined USAir in 1988 (PSA),and 1989 (Piedmont). In 60's and 70's United had new DC-8s, they were going down very often. Now it happened to USAir with their new 734, 733. All airlines had (and has) their good and bad time.

Please tell me your conclusions
Kind Regards

USAIR STRING

Thu Mar 11, 1999 2:14 pm

That's correct, Bob. (I believe) They had a nasty string of crashes from LA to CLT, LGA, etc. The NTSB website is pretty interesting when you sit down and read the reports (it can also be VERY boring).

I was counting the NTSB reports from 1990 until the present. The NTSB records don't go back even CLOSE to those years(the 30's)
I am sure that UA (and AA, Pan Am, TWA, etc.) have many more crashes, as they were MUCH larger than USAir (All American Air) ever was. Statistically, you have to use the number of flights per year v.s. the number of crashes to come to any conclusion. I hope this clarifies everything.


Thanks,

Thanks, Bryan, for the information about the crash website. It is the most complete list I have ever seen. The only thing missing is the tail numbers. I bookmarked it for future reference.
