Top 5 deadliest airline crashes

The catastrophe of Tenerife Airport Plane Crash

After an assault attack at the global airplane terminal of Gran Canaria (Las Palmas), five bigger planes and various other planes that needed to stop there were occupied to the air terminal of Los Rodeos in Tenerife. Los Rodeos wasn’t the main air terminal, with a runway and a parallel runway, and four exits between them. However, planes moved to the runway and took off.

Regardless of these dangerous situations, when Gran Canaria opened again in 1977, the stopped runway blocking plane in Tenerife asked the two 747s to move away from the main runway, so as to get in position for take-off. The mist was thick to the point that none of the planes could see the other, nor could the controller in the pinnacle see the runway or the two 747s there.


Since the air terminal did not have ground radar, the main path for the controller to distinguish the area of every flying plane was to utilize radio voice reports.

Following a few false impressions in the consequent correspondence, the KLM flight endeavored to take off while the Pan Am airline flight was still on the runway. The subsequent crash crushed two planes. This was one of the biggest plane crash in the world in which 583 victims and around 61 survivors were reported.
