Accidents and incidents

  • On 27 January 2005, a Farnair Hungary Let L-410 aircraft was carrying out a non-directional beacon let-down with radar assistance at IaČ™i Airport, Romania, but when the crew notified air traffic control of their position over the airport beacon and their intention to turn right outbound, they were seen to turn left. Then the aircraft spiralled down to crash on the airfield. The two crew members on board were killed. There was light snow at the time.
  • On 5 August 2016, an ASL Airlines Hungary Boeing 737-476(SF), registered as HA-FAX, overshot runway 28 when landing at Il Caravaggio International Airport in Bergamo and came to a stop on the highway, 300 metres from the runway end.
