....just mention Grand Canyon, Everglades and you think of that DC-6 Connie collision, The L-1011 or Valujet.

Mejorada del Campo, near MAD, where an AV 747 crashed in 1983.
(MEX a.netters: Writer Jorge Ibargüengoitia died on that crash; he was on his way to BOG from Paris)

Only one survivor.
|Quoting Stirling (Reply 27):|
The Everglades Crash....
There was actually two. My mind automatically thinks of the older one. (Even though it is not a city as requested by the OP...but still a place that describes a crash rather than the airline involved.)
I will not post the crashes I am thinking of, to see if the theory is correct.

Does anybody know the status of the girl who did survive this crash?
|Quoting AzoresLover (Reply 45):|
This was the Eastern L-1011 crash. IIRC, he was to be holding at 2000 feet while the crew was troubleshooting a landing gear light indicator. The crew was not paying attention to the flying, and the last words recorded just before impact were, I believe, from the co-pilot: "We're still at 2000 feet, aren't we?"
|Quoting AlexPorter (Reply 46):|
Didn't movement from one of the pilots cause the control stick to move, disengaging the autopilot?

DC-10 departs Riad and after a while notices smoke in the cabin but doesn't decide to return until it gets really bad.
