Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Aeroflot, the Soviet Union's national carrier, experienced a number of serious accidents and incidents during the 1970s. The airline's worst accident during the decade took place in August 1979, when two Tupolev Tu-134s were involved in a mid-air collision over the Ukrainian city of Dniprodzerzhinsk, with the loss of 178 lives. Including this event, there were nine deadly incidents with more than 100 fatalities, while the total recorded number of casualties was 3,542 for the decade. Almost all of the events shown below occurred within the Soviet Union. The company was reluctant to publicise deadly accidents at the time and tended to admit only those that took place beyond the borders of the Soviet Union or ones in which foreigners were included in the list of fatalities.show more
