    Air Canada 143 "Gimli Glider"

    Date: July 23, 1983

    Summary: After Canada switched to metric, the ground crew accidentally used POUNDS of fuel instead of KILOGRAMS of fuel. This led to the plane running out of fuel midway through the flight, but the crew managed to glide the plane to a former RCAF airstrip, now a motor racing track.

    Site: Gimli, Manitoba, Canada

    Total fatalities: 0

    Total injuries: 10 (caused during evacuation)

    Total Survivors: 69 (All)

    CFIT is an accident in which an airworthy aircraft, under pilot control, is unintentionally flown into the ground, a mountain, a body of water or an obstacle. In a typical CFIT scenario, the crew is unaware of the impending disaster until it is too late.
    In you're story, it was something we call a deliberate flight into terrain / mass murder suicide.

    Main body : Cargo Plane
    Aircraft : Antonov AN-12B
    Investigation : The FBI, And NNTSB were involved and helped in the process of determining of how the plane crashed
    Aftermath : The Plane caused 15,000,000$ dollars in damage with wings and equipment falling onto homes, cars, and major highways. Home owners and witnesses were also hit by falling objects causing in some cases major injuries. The only person to survive on the plane was a Radio operator but he was nowhere to be found, locals say they saw a man running away from the wreckage with a red star on his jacket. Police are still looking for the man ( They later found him on March 3rd 1994 trying to purchase explicit items at a gas station located in Roane County, Tennessee )

    - Fatal accident involving a Private North American B-25 Mitchell Bomber at Crimson Valley, USA, on January 6th, 1956.


    Date : 6 / January / 1956
    Site : Utah, USA
    Summary : Structure failure, Loss of control
    Aircraft Type : North American B-25 Mitchell
    Operator : Private
    Registration : N1395D
    Crew : 2
    Passengers : 4
    Survivors : 0
    Fatalities : 6 (all)
    Phase : En-route
    Nature : Private
    Departure Airport : Private Airstrip (Location Unknown)
    Destination Airport : So Cal Nevada Interstate Airbase (Airport now), Nevada, USA
    Damage : Destroyed
    Narrative :
    The aircraft crashed into the top of a mountain during flight and was completely destroyed. All 6 occupants perished.
    The crew over relied on the aircraft pitch trim system, (it was set to 15, which was insufficient) thus causing the aircraft to descent and gain speed. Furthermore, the crew's lack of experience with the aircraft caused it to experience severe structure failures.
    ex USAF during the 1940s, bought by a business man in 1952, written off 1956.


    - Cause :
    • The crew's over reliance on the aircraft pitch trim system, which resulted in an in-flight descent below the safe altitude and structure failure. Contributing factors were the crew's lack of experience with the aircraft type.

    - Fatal accident involving a PPLC Air North American B-25 Mitchell Bomber in Green Valley, USA, on September 15th, 1965.

    Date : 15 / September/ 1965
    Site : Green Valley, USA
    Summary : Stall due to pilot error
    Aircraft Type : North American B-25 Mitchell
    Operator : PPLC Air
    Registration : N9438BG
    Crew : 4
    Passengers : 4
    Survivors : 1
    Fatalities : 7
    Injures : 1 (critical)
    Phase : En-route
    Nature : Private
    Departure Airport : Green Valley, exact location unknown
    Destination Airport : Green Valley, exact location unknown
    Damage : Destroyed
    Narrative :
    The crew were flying over the hills in Green Valley for sightseeing and photography reasons, the left wing dropped violently and the aircraft entered a flat spin.
    The B-25 impacted a tree and the ground in a flat position, all occupants, but the co-pilot, were killed.
    It was determined that the aircraft entered a flat spin about 6-7 seconds before the initial impact.


    - 2018 Investigation :
    The accident was investigated by The "Vintage aircraft accidents team" who works with the Nevada Air Transportation Safety Board. It was understood that the aircraft did not experience any technical difficulties before the crash, and the investigators concluded that the probable cause as the following:
    • The pilot flying failure to maintain speed and control while conducting a low altitude photography maneuver, this resulted in a quick and sudden flat spin/stall in which recovery from was impossible. Contributing factors were (1) The operator's decision to operate the B-25 for low altitude related flights (2) The co-pilot's failure to monitor the instruments.
    This accident was a part of the "Vintage Aircraft Accident Investigations" conducted by the NATSB.

    - Fatal Accident involving a North American B-25 Mitchell Bomber near Italy Airport, Italy, on February 15th, 1958.

    Date : 15 / February / 1958
    Site : near Italy Airport, Italy
    Summary : Insufficient Climb,
    Aircraft Type : North American B-25 Mitchell
    Operator : United States Air Force
    Registration : 47-91438
    Crew : 7
    Fatalities : 4
    Survivors : 3
    Phase : Take-off
    Nature : Training
    Departure Airport : Italy Airport, IT
    Destination Airport : Italy Airport, IT
    Damage : Destroyed
    Narrative :
    The B-25 was on a training flight in Italy with 7 crew members. On the 15th of February, 1958, the bomber was expressing difficulties to climb from the Italy located in Italy, the first take off was abandoned.
    A Photographer at the end of the runway captured the bomber when after it barely missed the airport's fence. "It flew so close, I thought I was gonna get hit", the photographer said.
    The B-25's climb rate was slow, the pilots knew they wouldn't miss the hill that was facing the runway. The crew raised the nose, and the tail hit the hill.

    The B-25 went out of control and it crashed into 2 factories, bursting into flames. Four crew members were fatally injured, all 3 cockpit members survived with serious injures.


    - Cause :
    "The engines were not giving enough power for a safe take off, though the reason for this couldn't be determined. A Contributing factor was the crew's decision to fly straight into the hill instead of ditching/turning."

    Air Metro Flight 7341
    Air Metro Flight 7341 was a domestic scheduled passenger flight from Salt Lake International Airport, Utah, to the So Cal Nevada Interstate Airport in Nevada. On the 25th of June, 1962, the flight was being operated by a Civilian converted North American B-25 Mitchell when it crash landed in a field less than a mile near the destination airport, killing 4 and injuring 6. The crash was called a major event because Air Metro operated those B-25 for over 7 years without any fatal accidents. One of the largest investigation in the history of Nevada was launched, and many safety recommendations were suggested by board.


    - Air Metro :
    Air Metro was a regional airline that operated short- and medium-haul routes, the airline started operations back in 1954 with four DC-3s, in 1955, over 15 abandoned B-25s, and many other WW2 medium sized bombers were purchased by the airline. In 1960, the Air Metro started buying other small regional airlines and 2 small airlines that operate international routes.
    The B-25s used by the airline were used from 1955 until the late 1970s, two aircraft are still in operation, they are used for historical flights around the country.
    The crash of flight 7341 was the first fatal loss of a B-25 for the airline, there were many complains about the old aircraft after the accident, but a huge safety operation was conducted by the FAA and the airline was allowed to (still) operate the B-25s.
    - Flight :

    The flight departed from Salt Lake International Airport in Utah, heading directly to the So Cal Airport with no fuel stops.
    The flight was being operated with a North American B-25 Mitchell, registration N7341BG, that was built in 1945, the plane had its last maintenance check 4 days before the accident flight, as it was not used in these 4 days.
    The aircraft had logged more than 10.000 hours before the accident flight.
    The crew that day consisted of 3 people, the captain, who was a retired Air Force pilot, his co-pilot, who got his license in 1958 and the navigator, who was seated in the nose section, he was a navigator in WW2. The captain had more than 15.000 hours flying, almost 11000 of them were in the B-25. The co-pilot only flew the DC-3 before getting trained to fly the B-25 after joining Air Metro, he had about 4000 hours. The navigator had 9000 hours and he was an experienced man.
    The aircraft carried 8 passengers, they were all business workers from Nevada who work in Utah. One of them was an "Air Metro - Utah" flight attendant.
    The plane toke off without any problems from Utah, but bad weather was waiting for them in Nevada, the crew didn't expect this so they decided to do the straight in routine approach.
    - Approach and Crash :
    The pilot contacted the ATC of the So Cal Airport, he asked him about weather conditions, the ATC reported that heavy fog was present around the airport with high winds. The crew didn't abandon their approach plan and continued it normally.
    When the plane reached 4000 feet, the crew felt a "metal crush sound" coming from the right side, the co-pilot looked at the engine, but everything seemed normal. The plane veered of the approach course to the right because the crew were discussing the possibilities of the sound.
    The plane stayed at 4000 feet, the crew decided to abandon their approach when they heard the noise again, the co-pilot looked at his wing and he saw the wing tip breaking off the structure. The captain looked at the wing tip before it separated. The wing tip flew over the fuselage and hit the right elevator/rudder part. The plane started a steep descending right bank, the captain toke over the controls and informed the ATC about the problem and told him that they were going to crash land in an open field.
    The crew lowered the gears, prepared the flaps and changed the engine power to Idle. The plane impacted field terrain less than a mile from the runway in a flat position, it continued and came to the rest up a hill facing the hill located right next to the runway.

    - Rescue :
    The plane hit the ground not far from a road, eyewitnesses arrived at the scene and helped passengers to get out of the plane, both pilots were seriously injured, but they helped with rescuing the passengers. Emergency personal arrived a few minutes later.
    It was initially reported that all 11 occupants survived, but the navigator and 3 passengers passed away in the hospital due to the injures sustained in the crash landing.

    - Investigation :
    The investigators arrived at the scene a few hours after the crash, an investigator reported that one of the tail control surfaces was missing alongside the wing tip of the right wing, a preliminary report was released a week after the crash. The final report was released 1 year and a half later in 1963-1964.
    An investigator interviewed all survivors (including the pilots), everyone reported that the right wing tip separated and hit the right rudder causing a total loss of control, the missing parts were found 2 days after the initial crash by a police officer, the wreckage was moved to a hangar at the nearby airport for further examination.
    An examination of the aircraft engines revealed no faults, all major parts of the aircraft were examined, but there were no signs of fatigue or an electrical failure.
    The crew went to Salt Lake International to meet the maintenance workers who examined the plane before its last flight, a review of the worker's hours list revealed that the last maintenance check was conducted 4 days before the crash. The investigators watched the way Air Metro workers repair their B-25s, it was revealed that they use a small truck to ship the new items and move the older ones, the investigators concluded that the truck most likely hit the right wing tip during the last maintenance check, and that the maintenance workers didn't know that the damage was so severe to stop the aircraft operations, the plane was moved to a repairing facility, and the right wing tip was taped and the aircraft was considered as "able to fly".
    An FAA inspector was checking aircraft at the day of the accident flight, Air Metro called the pilots and told them to take off as fast possible.
    When the FAA inspector arrived, the crew were preparing to taxi, the inspector conduced a "fast" check around the airplane, but he didn't notice the right wing tip damage, and the aircraft was cleared to fly.
    It was also concluded that the pilots received a check list that didn't mention the right wing tip damage.
    The investigators interviewed the Air Metro workers, and they said that the airline was growing so fast, and the owner wanted as much flights as possible, so minor damages like the one from N7341BG was not repaired properly.
    In their final report, the Civil Aviation Safety Board Determines that the probable cause of the accident as the following:
    • An in-flight separation of the right wing tip, which hit the right rudder/elevator tab, subsequently causing the sudden uncontrollable bank. The detachment of the wing tip was as a result of improper maintenance repairs by Air Metro workers after a minor incident with a truck.
    Contributing factors:
    • Bad weather conditions at the time of the accident.
    • The failure of the FAA inspector to notice the right wing damage due to lack of inspection time as the plane was ready for taxi.
    • The failure of Air Metro to provide their pilots with check lists showing any damage that happened to the aircraft.
    Also contributing to the safety of the passengers was:
    • The crew's good CRM work and ability to maintain control of the aircraft following a sudden descending right bank.

    Aftermath :
    Both pilots returned to fly after a few months, many safety recommendations were published by the investigators. A Ceremony was held by Air Metro and the families of the dead.
    The accident will always be remembered as a turning point by the airline.
