On the 26th of June, 1988 a two day old Airbus A320 crashed in a spectacular way during an Airshow in Mulhouse-Habsheim airport outside of Basle, France.
Air France flight 296 was one of the first ever passenger flights with the new Airbus A320 and Air France had allowed it to take part in this air-show as part of a publicity day with the new aircraft.
During the fly-by at Habsheim airfield, the aircraft seemed unable to climb and ended up flying straight into the forrest on the far side of runway 34.
In this episode of "Air Accidents explained" I will dig deep into what happened on this day and why the aircraft seemed unable to follow the pilots commands.
