THIS DAY IN THE YESTERYEAR: CRASH OF AIR INTER FLIGHT 148 (1992)


Crash of Air Inter Flight 148 (1992)

Air Inter Flight 148’s trip from Lyon to Strasbourg, France, on January 20, 1992, was relatively uneventful until it came time to land. It was then that things went horribly wrong. The autopilot was mistakenly left in the wrong mode, accelerating the descent. The crew was unaware of the approaching danger because the plane was not equipped with ground proximity warning systems. All but nine of the 96 people on board were killed in the resultant crash. What else may have contributed to the crash? More… Discuss
