Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Madrid Runway Disaster was the collision on 7 December 1983 of two aircraft on the ground at Madrid-Barajas Airport. A departing Iberia Boeing 727 struck an Aviaco McDonnell Douglas DC-9, causing the deaths of 93 passengers and crew. On 7 December 1983 a Boeing 727 of Iberia (Spain's state airline) registered EC-CFJ was cleared for take-off from Madrid-Barajas Airport's Runway 01 as Flight 350, a scheduled flight to Rome's Leonardo da Vinci-Fiumicino Airport, in conditions of thick fog. At the same time a DC-9 of Aviaco registered EC-CGS was taxiing to the end of the same runway for take-off as Flight 134 bound for Santander Airport.
