The prospect of a 747 plane filled with passengers disappearing from the sky seemed like a fictitious plotline from a television show until March 8 when a Malaysian Airlines flight from Kuala Lumpur destined for Beijing vanished. No crash site, debris or sign of any of the 239 missing people on board have ever been found and the search continues to this day.
It was considered the deadliest plane crash in aviation history until just four months later when a different, unrelated Malaysian Airlines Flight 17, was shot down near the Ukrainian border. Though no one has ever been found formally responsible, American intelligence sources blame pro-Russian separatist forces using a surface-to-air missile for the deaths of all 298 souls on board.
The hyperbolic (an obviously inerrant) statement:
deadliest plane crash in aviation history
Tenerife airport disaster
The Deadliest Plane Crash
The Tenerife airport disaster was a fatal runway collision between two Boeing 747s on Sunday, March 27, 1977, at Los Rodeos Airport (now Tenerife North Airport) on the Spanish island of Tenerife, one of the Canary Islands. The crash killed 583 people, making it the deadliest accident in aviation history.
349: On November 12, 1996, the world's deadliest mid-air collision was the 1996 Charkhi Dadri mid-air collision involving Saudia Flight 763 and Air Kazakhstan Flight 1907 over Haryana, India.
346: On March 3, 1974, Turkish Airlines Flight 981
329: On June 23, 1985, Air India Flight 182 Boeing 747-237B 307 passengers and 22 crew members died
301: On August 19, 1980, Saudi Arabian Airlines Flight 163
So? Is this the return of the online sock puppets? Wondering where you guys went for awhile. Can't say I missed you and your disinformation tactics.
