    Day of accident:

    Conditions were nice on the day of the crash in Hong Kong and was a good day for flying


    There's a scene in The Hong Kong Job where Both Allen and Harding jump on the top of the Hang Seng Tower in Hong Kong and break into the vault by jumping from a helicopter,

    The Helicopter in question was a 6 year old Bell 206, registered as N-1720, The Pilot controlling the Bell was 31 year old Hiroaki Okamoto from Hiroshima,Japan with 560 Hours (Including 250 Hours on the Bell 206) he flew with Helicopters for 4 years. the passengers were Goodman,Andereasen and two stunt doubles, Chad Hanning,34 (Goodman's Double) and Kevin Barker,35 (Andereasen's Double) and Camerawoman Eloise Rodriquez,28 but while filming the scene, the Bell struck the side of the Bank and fell while breaking up and crashed into a filming crew on the ground, all 6 on board, a Canadian camerawoman named Erin Lopez,25 and a South Korean Tourist Pong Soo-jim,19 were killed on scene, Pong's boyfriend Nae Duck-Young died in hospital on April 21st, 8 Crew and 3 other civilians were injured (1 Crew member Conner Poythress had minor injuries from falling while running away from the scene)

    Air Star Museum Flight 2459
    On July 19th, 1970, Air Star Museum Flight 2459 departed from the Italy Airport at night time for a local sightseeing flight. The flight was being operated by a WW2 B-25 Mitchell aircraft that was owned by So Cal Stars Leasing LLC.
    About two minutes after takeoff, the plane entered a descending bank before impacting terrain while trying to make an emergency landing.
    All three cockpit crew members and six passengers perished. It was later determined that a failure in the number 1 engine (left engine) caused the attempted emergency landing.

    (An Identical B-25)
    Date: 19 / July / 1970
    Site: Italy
    Summary: Engine Failure
    Aircraft Type: North American B-25 Mitchell
    Operator/Owner: So Cal Stars Leasing LLC operating for Air Museum as Fight 2459
    Registration: N31953L
    Crew: 3
    Passengers: 6
    Survivor: 0 (1 initially)
    Fatalities: 9 (all)
    Injuries (Non Fatal): -
    Phase: Initial Climb
    Nature: Sightseeing / Photography
    Departure Airport: Italy Airport
    Destination Airport: Italy Airport
    Damage: Destroyed

    - Flight:
    The flight was scheduled to depart at around 9:30 PM, but due to faults in the operator's aircraft, the flight was delayed for 11:15 PM. Airport engineers said that the faults in the aircraft could take up a day to be dealt with. The operator decided to use one of their older machines, an early 1940s, WW2 era, North American B-25 Mitchell, registered N31953L.
    The planned number of passengers were eight, but due to the delay, one of the local tourists that planned for an early morning flight decided to board the flight.
    The aircraft was cleared to taxi at 11:31 PM. No problems were noted during the takeoff and there were no distress calls from the plane.
    At around 11:33 PM, the crew sent three mayday calls to the tower and requested to return, but the plane disappeared from ATC screens soon after.
    The pilots were trying to land in an open farm field when the plane struck walls and a tree before catching fire. Emergency services were on the scene shortly after, one passenger seated in the back initially survived, but he passed away two days later due to the injures sustained in the crash.

    The NTSB sent a team to help Italian Investigators to determine what caused the crash. The following day, Italian Investigators agreed to give the NTSB full charge of the investigation.
    The investigators arrived the following day, the wreckage was removed to a secure location near the airport, some parts were sent to WA for more detailed analysis.
    A Preliminary report was released one week after the accident. The final report was released one year and two months after the accident.

    - History of the Flight:

    - Preliminary Report:

    On July 19th, 1970, at around 1633 Eastern Standard Time, Air Star Museum Flight 2459, a North American B-25 Mitchell, N31953L, impacted terrain and a tree during an attempted force landing shortly after takeoff following a loss of engine power in the left engine in Italy. The two pilots, navigator, and six passengers were fatally injured. The airplane was destroyed by impact forces and post crash fire. No flight plan was filed for the aerial photo flight that departed Italy Airport. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed for the flight that was conducted under 14 Code of Federal Regulation Part 91
    The ATC reported that the crew sent three mayday calls shortly after takeoff. The plane then disappeared from ATC screens. Several witnesses reported seeing the aircraft in a steep left descend with the landing gears down.

    The aircraft touched down in a farm field near a road intersection, traveled at high speed, striking stone walls that were surrounding the field before impacting a tree. A post crash fire ensued. (Figure 1)
    All components of the airframe and the engine were located at the accident site. The wreckage was relocated to a secured facility for further examination.

    (Figure 1)

    - History of the Flight:
    The multi-seat WW2 era aircraft departed at 11:31 PM from Italy Airport on a local sightseeing flight. No problems were noted in the departure. The crew started to climb to the right. At 11:33 PM, ATC at Italy Airport received three Mayday calls, the pilots of the plane reported a failure in one of the engines and that they wanted to return. The plane was seen on a descending left bank with the landing gears down and the flaps set in the landing position. The plane struck stone walls and terrain before bursting into flames. The three crew members and six passengers were fatally injured.

    An examination of the number left engine (number 1) revealed that the failure was caused by fatigue cracking between the No. 5 and No. 6 cheeks. The cracking pattern suggested that numerous overstress conditions of relatively short durations acted to initiate the fatigue cracks, but the cause for this overstress could not be determined.

    - Probable Cause:
    • A loss of engine power in the left engine due to metal fatigue during a critical phase of the flight. The exact cause of the metal fatigue could not be determined.

    Landing,Investigation and aftermath:

    At 10:38 AM, Air France Flight 1952 emergancy lands at Boston Logan International Airport in Massachusetts,United States, The FBI and Boston Police surrounded the plane and ordered all occupants to immediately leave the plane with their hands up, One German passenger said "It was like we were surrendered soldiers surrounded by the enemy" Two Turkish Passengers, 1 Greek Passenger and 1 Egyptian Passenger were arrested due to them being "Suspicious",all four of the arrested passengers were released on September 28th. The other Passengers and crew were not allowed to leave for 1 and a half hours. After interviewing the Cockpit Crew (Captain Barthélemy, First Officer Wackernagel and Second Officer Vailiancourt) The FBI and Boston Police learned the whole incident was a misunderstanding. Captain Barthélemy claimed he was ordered by ATC to change the transponder code and ATC doing so. The Order to Squak 7500 was made by ATC expecting if the flight was not hijacked the pilots would react to the effect,instead they complied to the orders made by ATC which caused ATC to believed they were hijacked, The Entire 747 was searched by the FBI and TSA for a total of two days but nothing suspicious was found, On September 28th the FBI announced that Flight 1952 was never hijacked, Air France stated the "Mayday" message was innocent, The Mayday message was talking about the Mayday calls of the flights hijacked on 9/11. The Reason Captain Barthélemy changed the Flight Singling isn't known. The U.S blamed the false alarm on "Muddled communications between ATC and the Crew of the Flight" but Air France claims that Captain Barthélemy "Believed he was forced by ATC to send out the hijack signal" , One Spokesman for Air France said "Our Captain of that flight was obeying instructions given by The U.S Navy ATC to squawk Code 7500, He just realized the situation was serious"

    The Plane involved, F-GITF continued to serve with Air France until 2015 and was scrapped, Air France no longer uses Flight 1952 but still flies from Charles de Gaulle to JFK International

    Captain Barthélemy continued serving with Air France until retiring in 2014 at age 62

    First Officer Wackernagel continued serving with Air France until 2003, he joined Swiss International Airlines in 2004 and flew with them until 2015 , he has since retired from flying

    Second Officer Valiancourt continued serving with Air France until retiring in 2015 at age 64, he died from a heart attack on December 11th,2017 at age 66

    Nevada Aviation Airways An-12B 1989 Crash
    Nevada Aviation Airways Flight 9518 was a scheduled cargo flight from the So Cal Nevada Interstate Airport to Salt Lake International. On May 2, 1989, the flight was operated using an Antonov An-12B, registration N58BG, when it crashed into a hill when the aircraft ran out of fuel in Utah USA. The four crew members were fatally injured.

    Date : 2 / May / 1989
    Site : Utah, USA
    Summary : Fuel exhaustion
    Aircraft Type : Antonov An-12B
    Operator : Nevada Aviation Airways
    Registration : N58BG
    Crew : 4
    Survivors : 0
    Fatalities : 4 (all)
    Damage : Destroyed
    Phase : Enroute
    Nature : Scheduled Cargo Flight
    Departure Airport : So Cal Nevada Interstate Airport, Nevada, USA
    Destination Airport : Salt Lake International Airport, Utah, USA

    - History of the Flight:
    On May 2nd, 1989, an Antonov An-12B, registered N58BG, impacted terrain in Utah, USA. The four crew members sustained fatal injures and the aircraft was destroyed. The aircraft was owned and operated by Nevada Aviation Airways. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 121 domestic cargo flight, which originated from So Cal Nevada Interstate Airfiled, Nevada, and was destined for Salt Lake International, Utah.

    The ATC reported to the IIC that the crew reported that they've lost fuel and were trying to make an emergency landing. There were no further messages and emergency services were called.

    An on scene examination determined that all components of the airframe and the engine were located at the accident site. The cockpit and mid section were highly fragmented. The tail section and control surfaces sustained heavy impact damage.

    The aircraft was equipped with a cockpit voice recorder, but there wasn't a flight data recorder. An on scene examination of the airframe and engines revealed that there were no failures or malfunctions that could have effected normal operation of the flight.

    It was determined that the fuel onboard was enough for a 1:30 hour flight. The flight from So Cal to Utah need two hours as stated in the company's operation plans.

    - Cause:
    • The flight crew's failure to ensure an adequate fuel supply for the flight, which led to the stoppage of all four engines due to fuel exhaustion. Contributing to the accident were the flight crew's failure to monitor the airplane's fuel state and the flight crew's failure to maintain directional control after the initial engine stoppage.
