Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. British United Airways Flight 1030X crashed on 14 April 1965 in Jersey in the Channel Islands. Poor visibility and low cloud cover led to an aborted landing attempt, leading to a second attempt which resulted in the Douglas C-47B hitting the outermost pole of the approach lighting system before crashing into a field and catching fire. The crash killed all 23 passengers and 3 of the crew on board; only 1 flight attendant survived the accident. The aircraft, operated by British United Airways affiliate British United (C.I.) Airways, was a Douglas C-47B-20-DK (registration: G-ANTB) that had its first flight in 1945, with a total of 18,544 flying hours before the accident.show more
