Breaking: Boeing… Boeing 737 Explodes on Landing

Another Boeing passenger airplane crashes this time in Russia, killing at least 50 people, officials say.

The Boeing 737 was reportedly trying to land on its third attempt but exploded on landing.

This is already the fourth crash of a Boeing commercial aircraft this year:

  • April 13 – Lion Air Flight 904, a Boeing 737 carrying 101 passengers and 7 crew members, crashes into the ocean while attempting to land at Ngurah Rai International Airport on the Indonesian resort island of Bali, injuring 46 people.
  • April 29 – National Airlines Flight 102, a Boeing 747 freighter carrying cargo, stalls and crashes shortly after takeoff from Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan, killing all seven crew members on board.
  • July 6 – Asiana Airlines Flight 214, a Boeing 777, crashes short of the runway on landing at San Francisco International Airport, killing three of 307 on board and injuring 182. The crash was the first fatal accident involving the Boeing 777.
  • November 17 – Tatarstan Airlines Flight 363, a Boeing 737, crashes shortly before landing at Kazan International Airport, killing all 50 people on board.

Boeing commercial aircraft of all types are the most crash-prone aircraft this year and overall in the history of aviation while the Boeing 737 appears to be the most unsafe single type aircraft in the world this year as in many of the previous years.

In 2012 two Boeing commercial aircraft crashed (737 & 727) with a major loss of life, again Boeing was the only aircraft maker to have two of its planes crash that year.

In 2011 no fewer than 8 Boeing commercial aircraft (727 x 3, 737 x 3, 747, 767) crashed or had major accidents, with a combined death total of 172. In 2011 Boeing commercial aircraft were the most likely to crash and did in fact crash, with the most unsafe types being 727 with 3 crashes and again 737 also with 3 crashes.
