Date: June 26, 1988 Time: 14:45 Location: Habsheim, France Operator: Air France Flight number: 296Q Route: Basel - Basel AC type: Airbus A320-111 Aboard: 136 (passengers: 130, crew:6) Fatalities: 3 (passengers: 3, crew:0) Summary: The plane was scheduled to perform a series of fly-bys at an air show. The plane was to descend to 100 ft. altitude with landing gear and flaps extended. The automatic go-around protection was inhibited for the maneuver. During the maneuver, the plane descended thru 100 ft. to an altitude of 30 feet and hit trees at the end of the runway. The aircraft was totally destroyed by the successive impacts and violent fire which followed. The pilot allowed the aircraft to descend through 100 ft. at slow speed and maximum angle of attack and was late in applying go-around power. Unfamiliarity of the crew with the landing field and lack of planning for the flyby. Source: *******www.planecrashinfo****/
