One of the most significant predecessor was the Aloha Airlines Flight 243 on 28th April 1988. Metal fatigue on the Boeing 737-297 led to a hole that spanned about a third of the fuselage’s roof; it resulted in a rapid decompression that sucked a flight attendant, Clarabelle Lansing, out of the aircraft  . Another incident of metal fatigue that has led to a rupture was in October 2010 on American Airlines Flight 1640. A 1-foot by 2-foot hole was found on the roof of the Boeing 757 aircraft. Flight 1640 had to make and emergency landing due to decompression and thankfully, no one was hurt .
“The towers could only handle approximately 100 mile per hour winds, and Flight 11 was traveling at about 300 miles per hour when it collided with the North Tower.” (Illumin) The Towers fireproofed steel failed and the crash damaged the outside structure. “The planes took out much of the exterior tubular frame and damaged many of the floors in the impact zone, at which point the exterior columns could no longer support the structure...Steel-tube construction of the towers could not resist the intensity of the fires resulting from the energy released by the jet fuel.” (Illumin) The temperature of the fires burning too high and for too long for the Towers to maintain their structure. "Steel is born of fire..As it 's reheated, it expands and loses its rigidity. Above 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit, it loses a significant amount of its strength." (Shwartz) The Towers lost their ability to stand as the fire kept
One factor is that the Los Rodeos Airport is not big enough to accommodate all the aircraft that diverted to it when the Gran Canaria Airport temporarily closed due to a bomb explosion and a threat of a second bomb. The limited space available restricted the options of the Air Traffic Control (ATC) in terms of planning the takeoff of the planes. Congestion in the runway made it difficult for the planes to maneuver for takeoff when the Gran Canaria Airport
Lemnitzer said “the objective is to provide irrevocable proof that...the fault lies with the communists et al Cuba” he said it would be accomplished “by manufacturing various pieces of evidence which would prove electronic interference on the part of the Cubans”. When Glenn survived his trip Lemnitzer was devastated but it did not stop him in his vindictive plea to invade Cuba. Lemnitzer and his colleges became obsessed with Castro. The operations devised became more and more ridiculous. One was to imitate the incident of February 1898 when an explosion on a Battleship killed 266 sailors.
The passenger said there were mechanics in the cockpit as passengers waited again after boarding. The flight of Allegiant Air initially went back to the gate when a passenger suffered a medical issue. Then, once in the air, electrical problems forced the plane to turn around. Later, boarding was halted as a piece of emergency equipment had to be inspected. Four flights coming from Sanford made emergency landings in just one week in December.
Captain Dubois sleep schedule would have been changed and he would not have been table to take the needed rest during the flight. Since this was a long flight, Captain Dubois would have been too fatigued during landing (end of the shift). ICAO study shows that changes in sleep cycles would result in the captain being sleepy and having to make additional efforts to maintain his performance (ICAO, 2012). Alternative Action 2: One crew member sleep while the other two remain in command. The captain makes the decision of the rest cycle amongst the 3-man crew.
12 Weirdest Reasons for an Emergency Landing 1. Emergency landing after evacuation slide INFLATES inside cabin mid-flight Passenger flight 1463 of United Airlines was forced to make an emergency landing due to accidental opening of evacuation slide during the flight operation. The flight took off from Chicago to California with 96 people on board. A loud pop and hissing noise was been heard by a passenger name Michael Schroeder. Luckily not a single passenger was injured in this incident.
On 12 August 1985 JAL flight 123, which was a Boeing 747, lifted off from Haneda Tokyo International Airport for Osaka airport, some 215 miles away, at 6:12 p.m. After a normal takeoff the airplane reached its cruising altitude of 7200m, 12 minutes into the flight there were 2 explosions. The first explosion occurred when the aircraft’s aft pressure bulkhead ruptured causing an explosive decompression. The decompression caused the pressurized air from the cabin to rush out of the airplane which caused the vertical stabilizer of the aircraft to be ripped off, this caused the second explosion. The decompression also caused all four hydraulic lines of the aircraft to be cleaved. Oxygen masks for the passengers were deployed as the decompression
Plane with 224 individuals on load up accidents in Egypt; all on board most likely dead Upgraded 1.08pm: A Russian carrier conveying 224 travelers and team smashed in Egypt's Sinai promontory toward the beginning of today, and a security officer at the scene said most travelers seemed to have been killed. The Airbus A321, worked by Russian aircraft Kogalymavia under the brand name Metrojet, was flying from the Sinai Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheik to St Petersburg in Russia when it went down in a forsaken uneven region of focal Sinai not long after sunrise, the aeronautics service said. A legitimate Sweden-based avionics following administration said the airplane, having made an evidently smooth take off, swayed into a fast plummet not long after drawing closer cruising height. "I now see an appalling scene," an Egyptian security officer at the scene told Reuters by phone. "A ton of dead on the ground and numerous who kicked the bucket whilst strapped to their seats.
A while later, when we were about 2/3 of the way there, there was a lot of turbulence. Five minutes after the turbulence started, both engines stopped and began pulling away from the plane. Eventually, the wings sheared off of the hull of the plane and it got a whole lot scarier... "Aaaaaaaaaa!" One by one my friends shrieked.
