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.

Hi, While it was clearly the human factor that caused this accident, there is something that is not talked about a lot abroad: the juridic part was not pretty at all. Besides the reciprocal attacks between the pilots (accused of defamation) and the government (accused of corruption), something very wrong happened : The French civil aviation authority was accused of erasing a part of the records of the FDR. Indeed, according to the juridic report, the FDR and CVR were not recovered and sealed by the investigators but were taken by an official of the civil aviation authority during at least 10 days. They were given to the judges after and the authenticity of the data was thus unproven. And several seconds of recording before the crash were unavailable: the magnetic tape was cut then read outside of the FDR box. The extremities of the tape were damaged by the operation. Intentionally or not... it cannot be said. The administrative and technical investigation from the civil aviation authority didn't follow the procedures and destroyed evidences before the juridic investigation. So... not pretty at all.

Well i read and watched a lot about this accident. There are OEB's from Airbus before the accident. It couldve taken even longer than 5 sec for the engines to spool up because in low altitude they need even longer. Also the barometric Instruments were faulty at Times. Also Airbus manipulated the fdr before the Police could Take them. Mysteriously some of the Data is Missing.

I would argue the computer caused the accident: 1) controls would not allow for greater attack angle (based on indicated speed) 2) engines were building power ( airspeed not increasing, yet) The 2 or 3 seconds would have mattered. Preventing a stall situation, according to data was a mistake. The computer prevented pilot from saving the aircraft IMHO. Stalling the flying aircraft with engines thrust increasing was unlikely to happen, computer has no experience in fixing problems, Pilots do Autopilot has a shut off switch for a reason, Experienced pilots make better pilots than computers. Autonomous flight was Airbuses goal from the outset, competing with Boeing for market share. It was about money in the end ( and beginning).

Manufacturers of aircraft went to flybywire for a simple reason, lower skilled pilots. Most pilots have military experience, thousands of hours of seat time and Wisdom... Airlines were growing faster than the supply of Quality pilots from Military. Training pilots is expensive, years of airlines paying a trainee to gain time but not actually having a plane to captain. Technology of flybywire reduced training times which saved the Airlines millions of dollars PER pilot . Let's be honest about the subject, reduction if cost was primary concern and driver of the use, safety was secondary. Safety is always the primary issue above engineering, however reduction of men in the cockpit has always been a driver in the Airlines. Equally serviceable aircraft are no more safe if cable, cable over hydraulic, or flybywire. The computer is in escense an Extra Man (or two) in the cockpit. The computer replaced the radioman and the flight engineer.

This reflects in part on the post- Max crashes discussion of whether when Boeing was adding redundancy of connection of MCAS to AoA indicators; from being connected to only one existing to both (which should have been that way already); some argued that Boeing should be required to go to even more redundancy similar to the fly-by-wire Airbus system and have at least 3 AoA indicators. One reason Airbus has more AoA indicators (and redundancy in general) than Boeing is because since the A320 is more dependent on the plane to fly itself and less on pilot inputs as Boeing uses through more of a mix of technology and pilots, it is even more important that the data input to the flight control computer be accurate, such as when the computers override pilot input as described in this excellent Mentour Pilot article. So Airbus needs more redundancy BECAUSE of fly-by-wire. The amount now in the Max with the fix of MCAS should be enough and won’t expose Max flights to some of the problems the A320 has had. Examples include A320s not allowing sudden pull up near the ground by both pilots that fly-by-wire didn’t allow as part of stall protection, leading to several hard landings resulting in crashes; or a training A320 flight in instrument conditions where 2 of 3 instrument inputs agreed so the 3rd indicator’s input was rejected by the computer. Turned out the lone odd Indicator was right and the plane crashed. Each of the Boeing and Airbus systems have their advantages and disadvantages which is why the B737 family and A320 family, the first and second best selling airliners in history respectively, have comparable overall excellent safety records, all things considered.

About 20 months after this incident, another Fly-by-Wire flight met a tragic end in Bangalore (India) on 14 February 1990. The ill-fated equipment was A320-231 serving the Indian Airlines Flight 605 from Mumbai to Bangalore. The plane touched down a few hundred metres too early and hit the uneven grounds just outside the perimeter fence of Bangalore Airport. 146 passengers and crew were on board. 92 of them died (I do not recall the exact breakdown). I have vivid recollections of this incident because I narrowly missed boarding this ill-fated flight (flew a day earlier).

Would this have happened if it were a B737?

@Francois Tombe In the flight condition the aircraft was in, pulling the nose any higher than it was would have resultet in an immediate crash. Also the engines need several seconds from idle before they start to really generate thrust. You can't beat physics. The moment they reached that low altitude with that low speed and that nose up attitude they were doomed to crash.
Francois Tombe
Francois Tombe 13 күн мурун
The engines were spooling up. A pull up would have increased height at the cost of speed. Having gained a few meters, enough to clear the trees, the craft could have levelled off and accelerated enough to maintain height. With any rise blocked by the flight control computer, a crash into the trees was a certainty. A 737 under the same circumstance would at least have had a chance of survival. The Airbus control system made escape impossible.
shi01 14 күн мурун
Not in the same way, but it would have resultet in an accident regardless. The Flight Control Computer of the A320 basically prevented the nose from rising any further because it would have resulted in an immediat stall. In a 737 you have no stall protection, so the aircraft would have stalled and probably crashed onto the grass runway.

it is really surprising how experienced pilots assume huge engines on a huge plane will react faster then a fighter jet. On that speed and altitude even fighter jets are few that could recover; unless is something extremely maneuverable and powerful he is not getting out from that. After seeing a movie about NASA loosing an experimental plane due to pitot tube being frozen, I had a discution about experienced pilots making mistakes that no fly sim enthusiast makes after a decent number of hours, and many agree that the sim training is really underrated. In aviation training, you practice different procedures, but the pilot never just fool around with the sim to get a good feel on how plane react on limit situations. NASA pilot never correlate the fact he has no authority on the stick with the fact he was on idle and dropped like a rock, a mistake that no kid with 100+ hours in any fly sim does. I think pilots really lack sim time.

Thank you Mentour Pilot for reviewing this accident ! It triggered my desire to re-read "AIRBUS L'Assassin habite à l'Elysée", by Norbert Jacquet, ex-747 captain at AF (ISBN 2-84144-009-5). The book presents another view on the official story. The investigating judge in charge of the case, Germain Sengelin, requested the DGAC (Direction Générale de l'Aviation Civile, the french FAA) to deliver as exhibits the CVR and FDR, recovered on the day of the accident. The DGAC refused to comply. The judge had to send in the police to retrieve the recorders. Many days had passed before Justice could examine the data. Several seconds of the FDR recordings were missing : the important 10 seconds between "thrust levers idle" and "thrust levers full toga", just before the crash. The story is about a software glitch (aircraft in landing mode ??), allegedly covered-up by an official "human error conclusion" to avoid the catastrophic consequences on the aviation market. Cover-up in which even President Mitterand was involved. Hence the bold title of the book. Truth or controversy ? Anyway, a well documented reading, showing troublesome facts and shedding a different light on the official conclusions. An interesting book, even almost 33 years after the event on 26 June 1988.

The Sukhoi Superjet demonstration flight crash in Indonesia looks very similar. The plane was going too low and crashed into the mountain and the pilots were unable to "dodge" it when they finally noticed the obstacle. Interestingly enough, the Superjet is also a "fly by wire" design. I'm wondering if that contributed to such an outcome and could it have been more maneuverable with "standard" flight controls. Unfortunately, the Sukhoi demonstration flights organizers did not learn from the Air France 296 case and the plane was full of passengers.

Running back in the cabin trying to pry the deformed steel locking mechanism open with the bare hands does not work while the smoke is getting thicker by the seconds.

It actually really difficult to research this flight due to the time that has gone and the language barrier. There are still some things that were never properly explained to my liking. Firstly several independent witnesses testified that the blackboxes presented were not the ones they saw removed from the crash site, this include a reporter and police officer. Secondly the voice recording is missing 4-5 seconds - something that was only figured out years later when a recording of ATC that day was found. Apparently the captains story (he wrote a whole book eventually) and some physical evidence was enough to convince other aviation authorities that a cover up took place. The captain ended up flying 737's for years after the crash in Australia without incident.

After learning many things about this accident, that were not presented in such fluid and detailed manner in other media presentations, I still have some questions.- -Why the crew allowed the situation to develop until it was unrecoverable? In particular, why was the plan not carried out at the very moment they were flying over the aerodrome... As I understand it, the Captain instructed his First Oficer ( or was he a second captain?) "to take charge of the Throttles" in order to conserve the aircraft trimmed to fly at the desired AoA, at the necessary speed and planned height. Supossedly, the captain was going to "steer" the aircraft by flying it manually and therefore, he asked his F.O. or "pilot non-flying" to MANAGE the throttles during the low fly-by. The problem with having two captains on the same cockpit, is that the usual roles are altered, both behaving or ATTEMPTING TO ACT like a single man with split dual personalities, unless there is a marked difference in seniority and age, both are going to conflict the other one under the pressure of an inminent disaster, ie: both will tend to react as if both were the "pilot in command". Apparently, the First Officer "Captain" became too worried before the final moments, overly distracted with the outside view, probably assumed he was in a "instructor" kind of role, and he probably adopted a "Oh Oh" kind of reaction, getting in a distraction, hesitating between "distracting the flying captain, or acting as a proper second airman and pushing for TOGA. It seems that having two captains with too similar seniorities, age and experience in the same cockpit is a recipe for disaster. Look at the TAM-3054 flight at Sao Paulo accident, where the second captain did nothing to correct the wrong Reverse Thrust setting, and kept contemplating outside for all the lenght of the runway until they crashed on the building. In this other A320 crash in France, the F.O. kept looking outside instead of doing what was agreed previously: to keep the Throttles as to maintain height above terrain at all times! If my impression is correct, the second captain acting (or NOT ACTING at all) as a coordinated member of the crew, is as guilty or more than the pilot flying. In an emernency, it is the duty of the pilot supervising the pilot flying to act as needed to correct the pilot flying errors. Apparently, he did nothing other that expressing a vague worry about the point of no return. if assigned to manage the throttles, then he failed completely. If anyone has a better information, please comment.

“Plan the flight then fly the plan” looks like it didn’t happen. There have been several mishaps at AF over the years, including this one, where there seemed to be a culture of never questioning the Captain’s actions at the time, and shows the need for the use of CRM, and empowering the crew to call out any dangerous situations. To quote one of the US Navy Safety Center’s “mishap of the week”: “If you think you are potentially doing something unsafe, you probably are”. Flying at 120 kt all across an airport lower than a telegraph pole with 136 souls on board qualifies...

That's wrong information. You can always make a "Go Around" which requires TOGA power and there's nothing to stop you doing that until the moment both main gears touched the ground and are compressed, which in this case clearly never happend. The thing is the CFM-56 engine is known to react sluggish if you let it fully spool down to idle. I know from some A320 pilots that they delibrately demand a little bit of thrust from the engines shortly before the final approach phase, so the engines will be more responsive in case they need power suddenly.

Hey is it just me or are they using MSFS2020 for the visuals .

I just seen the video for Turkish airlines 1951 - Now, to comprehend what I am about to express, you need to understand certain additional conditions which i now will describe as a general background. - MOISTURE PENETRATING INTO RADIOALTIMETER/EMITTER-RECEIVER- Moisture is bed craddle for fungi or 'hongos' or mold or mildew growth - when a material is exposed to open elements of the air and the climate in general. - This 'fungi' can develop even faster than one can think, when there are enclosed keeping a certain level of warmth, when compared to the immediate outside areas from where there are growing. - In essence there are the basic natural tools for the start of a case of contamination known as 'oxidation'. In any shape, form or way, once it begins to grab hold of any surface, it does expands, into corrosion of film protected aluminum surfaces, paints, enamels, insulation materials, electrical wires, electrical connectors, wood, fabric and even some plastics (depending on their composition). It is noteworthy to indicate here, that ANY and ALL oxidation deposited on a given electrical or electronic connection or electronic commanded surfaces, may not become immediately noticeable of fungi oxidation, nonetheless, it does changes the characteristics of the signal transmission, by starting to create fungi on the contact surfaces. Then, after about, 18 - 24 hours would begin to start be noticeable. By then the electrical or electronic signal, would be loaded with this contaminant, leading to a higher level of electrical or electronic resistance level than the one desired. YES, oxidation, means, increased resistance in any and all electrical or electronic circuits contacts and metallic surfaces. - Most of the electronics on flight 1951 are built with components which communicate one another through a net of metallic little legs, called 'leads' - These leads mounting on an electronic Printed Circuit Board or PCB, on either other metallic mounting pads and or plated through holes in which thety are organized for the sequence of commands from an input device. These 'leads' utilize a very small amount of current to conduct their normal operating function, and a bit of fungi or mildew would enable the next component to read a false and or modified or unwanted input signal increased by the fungi's generated oxidation. In some cases it may reverse the output reading, depending on surrounding temperature conditions. Most likely this is cause originally by changing environments in a relatively short time. An example of this changing environment would be like going from a warm weather, to a colder weather, and then back to warm weather, leading to the formation of condensation on metallic surfaces, even if there are not directly exposed. - This may veld.ry well explain the negative reading on the receiver from the radio altimeter. It is a possibility, however, i have seen this type of failure, in the field on flight simulators. ( From old days in Singer-Link) and the mid '80's Eaton radar manufacturer, coming back with failures from the field. Also an influential factor for fungi or mildew to be developed any where in aircraft is the type of water, utilized on the post washing cycle of newly completed electrical or electronic boards. - For example, the same PCB Board, manufactured in California, utilizing exact same processes and materials, with exception of the local used water utilized at high pressure in the finish post manufacture washing cycle ( to make the PCB Board look greatly attractive ) will begin to be corroded in about 36 months. It will start to begin to show oxidation on the contact leads mounting on the electronic board in about 36 months. - While the exact same process, with same materials, and chemicals, but with local water in Taipei, would begin to be corroded in about 18 months. When failure units, where submitted to the same exact failure analysis testing, it showed that corrosion would begin prior to 12 months. -NOt all waters in the world are created equal- some contain more pollutants ( measured in parts per millionth -ppm) than others, the same goes for acidity and other oxidation promotors. Also, any surfaces and contacts which are in contact with an electrical or electronic circuitry and have been exposed to weather changes, even though not extreme ones, are more prone or suciptable to collect moisture and humidity, in the same area of weather environment, like in a desert area, which will run pretty cold at a cloudy night, and pretty hot during the a sunny day. - Same effect, but quicker. So, in general, we need to keep affected systems, subsystems and or components, clean with an special mix cleaner. Sometimes even a mix of alcohol may clean that well, however it is quite important that the area in which the fungi is in intimate surface contact with the substrate of any surfaces, be completely dried up to declared finally absolutely cleaned. I think it may have been a contributor to the cause of the negative readings on the radio altimeter. Then again there were in the low countries, with sometimes, altitudes which are measured below sea levels. May be radio altimeters, do show this condition on depressions of the terrain below.
