1. Blow Out
The night before the incident, a maintenance worker replaces the screws
attaching the cockpit window on a British Airways BAC-111 but does not
follow the correct procedure, using incorrect screws to do the job. The
next day the aircraft is heading for Malaga, Spain as Flight 5390 when
the cockpit window blows out, sucking the captain partially through the
hole. A member of the cabin crew clings to the pilot's legs as the
co-pilot flies the aircraft to Southampton Airport for an emergency
landing. The captain is found to be still alive after being outside the
cockpit for 21 minutes.
2. A Wounded Bird
Atlantic Southeast Airlines Flight 529's left propeller is damaged by
metal fatigue, causing it to lose one of its blades. The resulting
imbalance causes the engine to be partly torn from its mounting, which
disrupts the airflow over the wing. That and the massive increase in
drag means the aircraft is unable to maintain height on one engine. The
aircraft crashes before it can reach an airport, killing nine of the 29
people on board.
Air France Flight 8969 to Paris-Orly is hijacked on the ground at
Algiers Airport. The terrorists demand the aircraft be allowed to
depart for Paris so they could crash the A300 into the Eiffel Tower.
The only problem is the terrorists do not know how to fly the airplane.
The Algerian Army refuses and three of the 220 passengers are shot dead
over the next two days. The aircraft is cleared to take off but the
crew divert it to Marseille Provence Airport. The terrorist leader
forces the pilots to park the aircraft in front of the control tower
and the terrorists open fire on the tower building. The Hostage rescue
team of the French Gendarmerie storm the aircraft and after a gun
battle in the cabin, the hijackers are dead. Everyone else is evacuated.
4. Deadly Crossroads
Bashkirian Airlines Flight 2937 is flying in German airspace near
Überlingen under control of the Swiss air traffic control
service with 69 people on board. Due to multiple faults within the
local air traffic control system, the Tu-154M aircraft collides with
the tail of DHL Flight 611, carrying air freight. Flight 2937 is
destroyed instantly and Flight 611 crashes shortly afterwards, killing
all 71 people in the two aircraft.
5. Crash on the Mountain
American Airlines Flight 965 heads for Cali, Colombia. The crew is
asked if they would like to do a straight-in approach to Cali. The
pilots agree and inadvertently remove the waypoints from the flight
plan in their Flight management system (FMS), causing them to become
unsure of their exact position. Their mistakes cause them to crash into
a 9,000 foot mountain near Buga. Only four passengers survive.
6. Deadly Delay
During its flight to New York, Avianca Flight 52 is delayed numerous
times, causing the Boeing 707 with 158 people on board to run out of
fuel. The aircraft then crashes near Cove Neck, New York. 73 people die.
