Where: Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport When: 10:40 a.m. Wednesday Feb 25 Who: 135 passengers on board; eight crew members. (numbers vary) Why: The plane crashed as it approached the runway to land. Witnesses say the approach was too low and the pilot tried to go higher to avoid crashing into the A-19 (hwy.) The wreckage is in three pieces lying in a field next to the runway; emergency crews are tending injured passengers on site. The cockpit was intact, adn the fuselage broke at the wings.There was an immediate report of one fatality which was later denied. There were at least 20 injured and at least 50 survivors. Another report estimated the majority of the passengers are injured. (Sorry the numbers don’t mesh, but this is the news as it came in–) There was no fire. Fights to and from Schiphol were suspended temporarily after the crash. Update:
The number of deceased has been increased to 9.
More than 80 suffered injury.
25 suffered “serious” injury.
6 are hospitalized in critical condition.
Numbers corrected (again): 127 passengers 7 crew.
According to various passenger accounts, prior to the crash, twelve minutes to the scheduled landing, the plane was flying low, and an announcement was made that the plane was landing. (No announcement was made that the plane was in an emergency.) Immediately on landing, those who were able left the plane, and when there was no fire, they went back in and pulled the others out, especially in the front of the plane, where there was screaming. Outside help arrived within 20-25 minutes.

Boeing advised the Irish low-cost carrier at a meeting this week that it will only be able to deliver 14 of the 27 aircraft due by late December, according to the report, which cited an interview with the company’s CEO. The setback is the result of quality lapses at Spirit AeroSystems, which builds the jet’s frame, Bloomberg News said. Boeing aims to push back some of the handovers into the peak summer period next year, while Ryanair wants the planes sooner, the report said.
A final report on the March 2021 heli-skiing crash that killed five people and severely injured another placed blame largely on the “inadequate” pilot training program by the heli-ski company, as well as insufficient oversight checks by the Federal Aviation Administration.
