Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. On 15 December 1989, KLM Flight 867 en route to Narita International Airport, Tokyo from Amsterdam was descending into Anchorage International Airport, Alaska when all four engines failed. The Boeing 747-400, less than 6 months old, flew through a thick cloud of volcanic ash from Mount Redoubt, which had erupted the day before. All four engines failed leaving only critical systems on backup electrical power. One report assigns the engine shutdown to the turning of the ash into a glass coating inside the engines that fooled the engine temperature sensors and led to an auto-shutdown of all four engines.show more
