On 9 May 1987 this Il-62 crashed near Warsaw-Okecie Airport as it attempted to return for a landing following an engine failure which started a fire and severed the elevator controls. Sadly all 183 persons on board were killed, making this Poland's worst ever air disaster.

I had flown on this aircraft so many times in mid-80s, working as a flight attendant... A friend of mine, F/A Malgorzata Ostrowska perished with it...
