10 latest plane events

This section present the 10 latest airplane events matching all the following criteria:

  • The event involves at least one public transport airplane. A flight is considered as public transport when it carries, from point A to point B, passengers or cargo for commercial purposes. Public transport operators must hold a national air operator’s certificate and an operating licence.
  • The event involved at least one airplane having a maximum take off weight equal or more than 12,000 lb (5,7 tons). This corresponds to the definition of a large aeroplane in the sense of the civil aviation regulation. Airplane that fit in that category must comply with more stringent regulations.
  • The event resulted in a hull loss of at least one public transport airplane. Hull loss means the airplane is damage beyond repairs.

A few events presented here may not match with those criteria, such as relevant events of flight tests aircraft, or military transport planes.
