AIR CRASH INVESTIGATIONS - KILLING 290 CIVILIANS - THE DOWNING OF IRAN AIR FLIGHT 655 BY THE USS VINCENNES By Dirk Barreveld

On July 3, 1988, the American navy ship USS Vincennes, a Ticonderoga-class guided missile cruiser operating in the Persian Gulf, shot down Iran Air Flight 655, an Airbus A300B2-203, on its way from... More > Tehran to Dubai. All 290 people on board died. Iran Air 655 flew within its assigned corridor. The USS Vincennes thought it had to deal with an Iranian F-14 fighter jet. From this point of view it was simply a case of mistaken identity. It is amazing that a guided missile cruiser with extremely advanced electronic capabilities such as the USS Vincennes, equipped with an ultra modern system such as Aegis, could make such a case of mistaken identity. Although the U.S. had to pay damages, a clear admission of guilt, the officers and commander of the Vincennes received awards and decorations after all.< Less

More > crashed into the mountains northeast of Marseille. The investigation into the causes of the crash revealed that the co-pilot, at a moment when he was alone in the cockpit, had deliberately flown the plane into the mountains killing all 150 persons on board. The investigation revealed also that the co-pilot was under medical treatment for depressions by several health care providers. Neither of those providers informed any aviation authority, nor any other authority about the co-pilot’s mental state. No action could have been taken by the authorities and/or his employer to prevent him from flying on the day of the accident, because they were not informed about the co-pilot’s mental state of mind.< Less
