Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Inex-Adria Aviopromet Flight 1308, registration YU-ANA, was a Yugoslavian charter flight that crashed on Corsica's Mt. San Pietro in early December 1981, killing all 180 people on board. It is the highest death toll of any aviation accident involving a McDonnell Douglas MD-81. On December 1, 1981, the McDonnell Douglas MD-81 took off from Brnik Airport on a chartered flight from Slovenia (at the time Yugoslavia) to Corsica's capital city of Ajaccio with 173 Slovenian tourists and 7 crew members. The tourists were on a 1-day trip to Corsica. When Flight 1308 reached the airspace around Ajaccio's Campo dell'Oro Airport, it entered a holding pattern, awaiting clearance to land. The atmosphere in the plane was relaxed, with everybody already thinking of the day of leisure awaiting them on Corsica. At some point, the co-pilot even let his young son enter the cockpit.show more
