10 unbelievable aircraft accidents (Video)

Aviation is one of the most challenging areas where many disciplines come together. According to statistics, although the safest vehicles are air vehicles, sometimes misfortunes do not listen to statistics. Together with videos that prove that the film scenes are not exaggerated, we’re looking at incredible plane crashes.

Warplanes, helicopters, gliders and more … The curiosity of humanity’s wings can take him to the end of the world in hours. Without a pair of wings, we can fly in the air with the perfect combination of tools and science and engineering that can’t even go on land.

When we say perfect, we may have exaggerated. In fact, the flaws do not leave us even in the air as everywhere. Aviation Fails, an Instagram page, shares some of the most peculiar crashes in aviation history. Today we made a compilation of the most noteworthy images shared by the page in question. The description of each accident is under the videos.

December 11, 2013, Hawaii. A small passenger plane makes a soft landing on the ocean:

😱The Scariest thing ever!! On December 11, 2013, about 1522 Hawaiian standard time, a Cessna 208B, N687MA, was destroyed following a loss of engine power and ditching into the Pacific Ocean near Kalaupapa, Hawaii. One passenger was fatally injured, the airline transport pilot and two passengers were seriously injured, and five passengers received minor injuries. The airplane was operated by Makani Kai Air. The flight departed from the Kalaupapa Airport on the island of Molokai, about 2 minutes prior to the accident, with an intended destination of the Honolulu International Airport on the island of Oahu. In a written statement, the pilot reported that shortly after takeoff from runway 05, at an altitude of about 400 feet above ground level, he began a left turn for a downwind departure. Shortly after passing 500 feet AGL, the pilot motioned toward the power lever to reduce power for the climb when he heard a loud bang followed by an immediate loss of engine power. The pilot continued the turn toward land, verified the fuel valves were on, and observed all engine gauges displaying "zero." The pilot realized the airplane was not going to make it to land, and rolled the wings level while broadcasting a mayday distress call. Shortly after, the airplane landed within open ocean water in a flat or slightly nose up attitude. All the passengers and the pilot exited the airplane through the rear right door, and the airplane remained on the water surface for approximately 25 minutes before it sank. One passenger swam to shore, and United States Coast Guard and Maui Fire and Rescue helicopters recovered the pilot and 7 passengers from the water about 80 minutes after the ditching. @aviationfails Most intense page on Instagram!

Numerous small flights are organized between the Hawaiian islands every day. Six years ago, the Cessna 208B flight was only one of them. The plane suddenly loses motor power as close to the island of Kalaupapa. It is soft insight, but it makes a hard landing for those who live. While the pilot and 3 passengers suffer heavy injuries, 5 passengers managed to get rid of them with minor abrasions. The plane is at the bottom of the ocean.

June 26, 1988, France. Airbus 320 diving into the forest:

Air France 296 was a chartered flight to demonstrate the brand-new Airbus A320 on 26 June 1988. The aircraft was the very first fly-by-wire airliner, meaning the controls were all managed via computer and electronic inputs rather than traditional mechanical means. Most passengers were journalists and raffle winners on the demonstration flight, which was to leave Paris to conduct a scenic tour and fly-by pass over the Habsheim aerodrome before returning to the airport. The fly-by was planned to be conducted at 100 feet altitude over the runway at Habsheim, but the pilots' unfamiliarity with the airport led to them passing over at 30 feet instead. They were not aware of the treeline ahead of them until the plane was about to collide. The first officer applied full power, but the A320 did not climb fast enough and plowed into the trees. The branches and leaves clogged the engines, causing them to fail and the plane to crash. The dense forest tore off the right wing, igniting the fuel inside. While all passengers survived the initial crash, the dense foliage around the aircraft and the spreading fire made egress difficult. Ultimately, 3 passengers were killed when they were trapped in the burning wreckage. Ultimately, the cause of the accident was attributed to pilot error. However, the pilots believed that the new computer system in the A320 had serious flaws which led to the disaster. Many of the advanced systems in the A320 were integrated with what is called "flight envelope protection", which prevents the pilots from conducting maneuvers which could endanger the structural integrity of the aircraft. When full power was applied to the engine to climb above the trees, the pilots tried to pull the plane up to increase lift. However, the computer entered "alpha protection mode" and prevented the elevators from responding because of the increased risk of stalling at such low speed and aircraft attitude. Despite this, the pilots were ultimately in error for their low altitude, low speed and late response. The captain was charged with involuntary manslaughter and served 10 months in prison. The A320 has since become a very successful airliner. Follow @aviationfails

Fighter Jet catches fire after maneuver goes terribly wrong!!! Follow @aviationfails for exciting insightful content! 🚀 On 12th of June 1999 Su-30MKI "01" Blue crashed during a training flight prior to the grand opening. While demonstrating a controlled spin, which was a part of the displaying programme, Aver'yanov initiated recovery too late, making one turn too many. As it pulled out of the dive, the fighter struck the ground in a tail-down altitude; the next moment it was climbing away, but with the starboard-engine's jetpipe broken by the impact and flames belching from the port-engine due to a ruptured fuel line. The damaged engine's nozzle was pointing 30 dregrees up, causing an uncontrollable pitch up. As Su-30MKI stood on its tail and the nose started falling through, Aver'yanov and Shendrik ejected. Seconds later the fighter pancaked out, beside the runway, and exploded – an eerie reminiscent of Anatoliy Kvochur's accident in a Mig-29 at the 1989 Paris Airshow The crew was rushed to a hospital, but it was discharged the following day, as neither Aver'yanov nor Shendrik had suffered any injuries. The experts agreed that the crash was caused by pilot error, Aver'yanov said later that the disorientation caused by the sun affecting the pilot's perception of height, had been the cause of the accident.

July 2010, US. Another maneuver error and the survivor pilot:

😱The jet, flown by Captain Brian Bews, lost thrust in its right engine while doing a maneuvering about 90 metres above the ground at the Lethbridge County Airport in July, 2010. The plane didn't respond and Capt. Bews was forced to eject seconds before the CF-18 crashed and exploded in a massive fireball. The engine malfunction was likely the result of a stuck ratio boost piston in the right engine main fuel control that prevented the engine from advancing above flight idle when maximum afterburner was selected. The large thrust imbalance between the left and the right engines caused the aircraft to depart controlled flight and the aircraft was unrecoverable within the altitude available

February 4, 2015, is just one of the disasters caused by an unregistered airline and neglected aircraft:

July 28, 2010, USA. The military plane that was uncontrolled when everything was fine:

November 23, 1996. The Boeing 767, which was kidnapped by pirates, fell to the sea:

😱A flight turned disasterous when 3 highjackers seized control of an airplane. The men threatened to blow the plane up in flight if the pilots did not obey their demands. The hijackers said that there were eleven of them when in fact there were only three.After assaulting and forcing first officer Yonas Mekuria into the cabin, they made an announcement. Over the intercom, they declared in Amharic, French and English that if anyone tried to interfere, they had a bomb and they would use it to blow up the plane. Authorities later determined that the purported bomb was actually a covered bottle of liquor. The hijackers demanded the plane be flown to Australia. Leul tried to explain they had only taken on the fuel needed for the scheduled flight and thus could not even make a quarter of the journey, but the hijackers did not believe him.Instead of flying towards Australia, the captain followed the African coastline southward. The hijackers noticed that land was still visible and forced the pilot to steer east. Leul secretly headed for the Comoro Islands, which lie midway between Madagascar and the African mainland.The plane was nearly out of fuel as it approached the island group, but the hijackers continued to ignore the captain's warnings. Out of options, Abate began to circle the area, hoping to land the plane at the Comoros' main airport. The captain attempted tried to make an emergency landing, but a fight with the hijackers at the last minute caused him to lose his visual point of reference, leaving him unable to locate the airport. He was left no choice but to ditch the aircraft in shallow waters 500 yards off the coast. The captain attempted to land parralel to the waves, but while on landing the left engine contacted the water firSt, acting as a scoop the airplane banked sharply to the left, sending the aircraft cartwheeling and breaking apart.

Boeing 727 test images proving why seat prices are different on an airplane:

😲Dramatic Boeing 727 crash-test reveals that sitting in the cheap seats of a plane could save your life!! On April 27, 2012, a team of scientists staged an airplane crash into the Sonoran desert in Mexico. The unmanned Boeing 727-200, fitted with 170 crash-test dummies with breakable bones, cameras and sensors. The dummies were categorically arranged in three different positions on board the plane: one in the classic brace and wearing a seat-belt; one belted but not in the brace position; and one neither belted nor in the brace. After the pilot parachuted out of the plane at 2,500ft, the jet was guided towards the ground by a pilot in a following Cessna via a remote-control device. On impact first 11 rows of seats ripped out as the nose of the plane dipped and the front of the fuselage sheared off. These rows would usually be where the most expensive seats would be located.A force of 12G was recorded in the front of the remaining cabin while, further back in the plane, the force dropped to 6G.Experts concluded that no first-class passengers would have survived the impact but 78 per cent of the remaining passengers would have lived, with the chances of survival increasing the further back they were seated.They also found that the dummy in the brace position would have survived the impact, the one not in the brace would have suffered serious head injuries, and the dummy not wearing a seat-belt would have perished.First class air travel offers plenty of perks but it seems that increased safety isn't one of them.

There is a detail to consider when buying a flight ticket: the seat. The video above was taken on 27 April 2012 in the deserts of Mexico. A Boeing 727-200 type airplane that is not found in human is being lowered to the ground. The floor in question shows higher resistance compared to ordinary runways at the time of the first contact. This is forcing the plane and after a while, the body of the 727 is disintegrated by the weakest parts.

Before the test, Boeing installs 170 mannequins inside the aircraft to achieve realistic results. Mannequins are organized in 3 different categories. After taking the pilot into landing mode, he jumps from a height of about 760 meters to a parachute. With the impact of the collision during the landing, the nose of the first 11 rows of seats is twisted. The nose is generally known as the most expensive ticket. As a matter of fact, according to the results of the accident, all the passengers in the nose, called the first class, suffer serious damage.

Only 78% of the other passengers receive wounds to survive. A significant part of the survivors are found in the group wearing license belts. Apparently, airline fare policies are not determined by security.

Note: The purpose of these tests is to inform all aviation companies, to strengthen aircraft by taking measures against possible accidents. Therefore, work on the images you do not actually see the accident scenario is performed. Today, such accidents are extremely rare.
