Attempt to assassinate Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi went disastrously wrong and was covered up, ex-Italian PM reveals

Former two-time premier Giuliano Amato said the aircraft was attacked by mistake over the Mediterranean Sea and a Libyan military jet was the real target.

Amato appealed to French President Emmanuel Macron to either refute or confirm his assertion about the cause of the crash of Itavia flight 870 on June 27, 1980.

Big deal, the US military shot down Flight 800 near Long Island.

There was a Jumbo jet that crashed on take off at O'Hare airport in Chicago in 1979. The plane lost an engine. It didn't quit working. It fell off the plane.

This led to changes in how the maintenance on the engines was performed.

They were removing the engine and mount together rather than separately as the maintenance manual suggested.

That shortcut cost the lives of 273 people, including two on the ground.

I knew this woman who was supposed to be on that flight but missed it. We went to high school together. ;)

Mentor Pilot is good. He covers the DC-10 accident, and all others, in great detail.
