The last incident of 2011?

UX1900 / EC-JHL on the mud in CDG

On 31 December 2011, Air Europa Flight UX1900 flown by EC-JHL (737-85P) landed normally at Paris CDG, and then, somehow, ended up on the mud outside the runway.

Two questions popped in my mind:
  • Was this the last accident/incident in 2011?
  • Was 2011 the year of 737-slipping (operationally and commercially) ?

5 years since Adam Air 574...

Rest in peace to those on board KI574... a tragedy that was so mysterious, so baffling, everyone thought it was either an extremely rare technical defect, or something supernatural.

Unfortunately, the truth was somewhat very basic... human error, and a type of human error whose extent of damage and destruction has never before seen in the industry caused by pure and simple greed.

"The Plane that Vanished"

So, five years on, have we, the public, received what we deserve? Have we got "a safe and reliable means of air transportation?" Things have improved, but there is still a long way to go.

See my involvement in the episode. May we learn from those mistakes!
