Former types of aircraft

Asiana Airlines has already used the following types of aircraft in the past:

Incidents

  • On July 26, 1993, a Boeing 737-500(HL7229) flew into a mountain on the flight from Seoul-Gimpo on approach to Mokpo in rain and poor visibility. The pilots mistakenly assumed they had already flown over the mountain. This CFIT (Controlled flight into terrain) killed 68 inmates, 66 passengers and two crew members; only 48 of the 116 people on board survived (see also Asiana Airlines flight 733).[20]
  • On November 11, 1998, a Boeing 747-400 with the aircraft registration number rolledHL7414 on the flight from Seoul-Gimpo to New York City for refueling at the parking position in Anchorage. When trying to make a 180-degree turn, engine 1 hit the wing of a parked Ilyushin Il-62 of Aeroflot (aircraft registration number RA-86564). Immediately afterwards, the Boeing's left wing bored into the front of the Ilyushin's vertical stabilizer. The Asiana pilots stepped up the gas so that their wing cut halfway through the Ilyushin's tail unit. Excessive rolling speed was found to be the main cause. There was no personal injury; however, the Il-62 had to be scrapped.
  • On July 28, 2011 at 4:12 a.m. local time, a Boeing 747-400F with the aircraft registration number crashed HL7604 on the flight from Seoul-Incheon to Shanghai with a two-man crew near Jeju-do Island, about 250 miles south of Seoul, into the sea. The crew had previously reported a fire alarm in the cargo hold and attempted a safety landing at Jeju Airport. According to the Ministry of Transport in Incheon, the cargo plane had loaded 58 tons of cargo, of which around 400 kg were classified as "highly flammable".[21] Among other things, lithium batteries, semiconductors, and paint and resin solution were charged (see also Asiana Airlines flight 991).[22]
The Asiana Airlines Boeing 777-200ER crashed on July 6, 2013 in San Francisco
  • On July 6, 2013, a Boeing 777-200ER with the aircraft registration number had an accident HL7742 coming from Seoul-Incheon on the approach to the San Francisco International Airport. The machine touched down in front of runway 28L and came to a standstill on the tarmac, severely damaged. There were 291 passengers and 16 crew members on board, three people were killed and 181 people injured, 47 of them seriously (see also Asiana Airlines flight 214).[23]
  • On April 14, 2015, an Airbus A320-200 with the aircraft registration number had an accident HL7762 on the flight from Seoul-Incheon on the approach for landing at Hiroshima Airport. The aircraft brushed against an antenna system and hit the ground 330 meters from the runway; the machine finally came to a stop 130 meters from the runway after turning 180 degrees. 27 of the occupants were injured and the aircraft suffered significant property damage.[24]
