Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Air France Flight 296 was a chartered flight of a new fly-by-wire Airbus A320-111 operated by Air France. On June 26, 1988, it was flying over Mulhouse-Habsheim Airport (ICAO code LFGB) as part of an air show. The low-speed fly-by was supposed to take place with landing gear down at an altitude of 100 feet (30 m). Instead, the plane slowly descended to 30 feet, and crashed into treetops at the end of the runway. Three passengers died. This was the first crash of an Airbus A320. The cause of the accident is disputed, as many irregularities were later revealed by the accident investigation.show more
