On October 4, 1992, at 17:20 UTC, El Al Israel Airlines Flight 1862, a Boeing 747-200 Freighter, with three crewmembers and one non-revenue passenger on board, took off from runway 01L at Schiphol Airport, Amsterdam, the Netherlands. At 17:27.30 UTC, with the aircraft at flight level 65, engine no. 3 and its pylon separated from the aircraft and damaged part of the leading edge of the right wing. The no. 3 engine then struck engine no. 4, causing this engine and its pylon to depart the wing. During an attempt to return to Schiphol Airport control was lost and at 17:36 UTC the aircraft crashed into a residential area in a suburb of Amsterdam, killing 43 people (4 on board, 39 on the ground). The investigation concluded that the design and certification of the B 747 pylon was found to be inadequate to provide the required level of safety.
