Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A JAT Yugoslav Airlines flight, carried out by a Sud Aviation SE-210 Caravelle 6-N (Registration: YU-AHD), was nearing its end completing a scheduled domestic Flight JU 769 from Skopje, SR Macedonia to Titograd (today known as Podgorica), SR Montenegro when it crashed into Maganik mountain killing all 41 passengers and crew, along with the aircraft being written off. The flight, a scheduled domestic Flight JU 769 from Skopje Airport to Titograd Airport was nearing its end. Allegedly, the flight was instructed to start descent, although the aircraft was not visible on radar (which were allegedly not working well at the time) nor could the control tower staff make visual contact with the aircraft. At the time of the flight, there weren't any qualified staff at the control tower in Titograd. The flight was asked to descend to a flight level of 6,000 feet or a height it saw fit. The aircraft crashed into the peak of Babin zub on Maganik mountain near Kola in. All 41 people on board died in the accident.show more
