A Small Sampling of the Intensely Interesting And Strange Accident Stories Inside

You’ll read about the fatal crash into Humpy Ridge, where all aboard perished as the aircraft struck the mountain in a level-powered flight.

You’ll discover the details around the loss of a United Air Lines Douglas transport off Point Reyes, California, on November 29 during a scheduled flight from Medford, Oregon, to Oakland. The plane carried four passengers and three crew, all of whom survived a forced landing on the open sea after the ship’s gasoline supply had been exhausted, though only the first pilot and one passenger were subsequently rescued. The bodies of the second pilot and one passenger were recovered from the waves. In contrast, the stewardess of the plane and two passengers are officially listed as “missing,” though their death is generally assumed.

A fatal crash at La Guardia airport left the united DC-3 in an unusual position as it broke through the boundary fence on an aborted takeoff and, with both brakes locked, proceeded to roll straight ahead over the remainder of the runway, crashed through the fence at the airport boundary, and half-bounced, half-flew across the Grand Central parkway. The aircraft finally came to rest immediately East of the Casey Jones School of Aeronautics.

You’ll read about the fire that developed in flight that resulted in parts of the plane’s interior falling from the aircraft in flight. About a fire so voracious and severe that passengers would have died a very horrific death in flight. Another fire during flight resulted in a passenger jumping from the aircraft and falling to his death by impacting the ground. How about the United flight that crashed after being struck by birds! This study includes the famous Sioux City miracle landing report.
