Avianca Flight 011, registration HK-2910X, was a Boeing 747-200B on an international scheduled passenger flight from Frankfurt via Paris, Madrid, and Caracas to Bogotá that crashed on 27 November 1983. It took off from Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris at 22:25 on 26 November 1983 for Madrid Barajas Airport; take-off was delayed to wait for additional passengers from a Lufthansa flight due to a cancellation of the segment Paris-Frankfurt by Avianca for operational reasons. The jet had been cleared to land at Barajas Airport, the first of two scheduled en route stops originating at Paris, with a final destination of Bogota, Colombia.

dbo:abstract
  • Avianca Flight 011, registration HK-2910X, was a Boeing 747-200B on an international scheduled passenger flight from Frankfurt via Paris, Madrid, and Caracas to Bogotá that crashed on 27 November 1983. It took off from Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris at 22:25 on 26 November 1983 for Madrid Barajas Airport; take-off was delayed to wait for additional passengers from a Lufthansa flight due to a cancellation of the segment Paris-Frankfurt by Avianca for operational reasons. The jet had been cleared to land at Barajas Airport, the first of two scheduled en route stops originating at Paris, with a final destination of Bogota, Colombia. During the instrument landing system (ILS) approach to runway 33, the 747 crashed on a hill approximately 7.5 miles south east of the airport, killing 181 people, including 19 on-duty and four off-duty crew members. The 11 surviving passengers were seriously injured. The cause of the accident was judged to be pilot error, having incorrectly determined the position of the plane. As of 2019, Avianca Flight 011 remains the second-deadliest aviation accident in Spanish territory behind the Tenerife airport disaster, and the worst accident in the history of Avianca. (en)
