This happened on Air Canada plane ride to London, England in December 2007 from Toronto. This was a classic panic attack became later an unruly passenger. A cabin attendant with a preselect passenger in trying to keep him quiet. Note the constraint kit ;)
wo months since the 11 September, 2001 attacks, the event remained fresh in the minds of Americans. At John F. Kennedy Airport, American Airlines Flight 587, an Airbus A300-600R, leaves on a three hour flight to Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic. Shortly after take-off, it encounters turbulence from a Japan Airlines Boeing B-747 that took off from the same runway 30 seconds earlier, causing it to violently tilt back and forth. The pilot repeatedly steps on the rudder back and forth to stabilize the plane, but his overuse of the rudder breaks the tail from the fuselage. Without the tail to support the aircraft, it spins out of control and crashes into Rockaway, Queens, killing all 260 people onboard and 5 on the ground.
In January 2007, an Adam Air Boeing 737 crashed into the Makassar Strait killing 102 people on board. The pilots inadvertenly disengaged the autopilot while trying to fix the inertial reference system, causing the plane to plunge to the water
On March 1, 2010 an Airbus A300 cargo plane, owned by Turkish carrier ACT Airlines, suffered a landing accident at Bagram Air Base (BPM), Afghanistan. The left hand main gear collapsed and the airplane came to rest on the side of the runway. The airplane, registered TC-ACB, suffered substantial damage but the five crew members escaped unhurt. At 03:10 the crew gets outside and sees the plane... A video of the abnormal landing mishap shot from the jump seat .
Aug 6, 2008. American Airlines flight #31 bound for Honolulu made an emergency landing at Los Angeles International Airport this morning at 9:30AM Local Time. All passengers and crew managed to escape safely via the emergency inflatable slides. Two minor injuries were reported among the seven crew members and 150 passengers on board.
