Accidents and incidents

  • On 28 December 1971, Vickers Viscount F-BOEA of Air Inter was damaged beyond economic repair when it departed the runway on a training flight during a simulated failure of #4 engine.
  • On 27 October 1972, Air Inter Flight 696, Vickers Viscount 724 F-BMCH, en route from Lyon to Clermont-Ferrand, crashed 4 km west of Noirétable during bad weather; 60 on board died, 8 survived. The subsequent investigation determined that the accident was caused by the flight crew's failure to notice that their plane's radio compass had shifted 180 degree, most likely the result of electrical discharges in the rainstorm they were flying through; this blocked the signals emitted by Clermont-Ferrand's non-directional beacon (NDB), which was instructing the crew to fly a holding pattern prior to receiving clearance to descend to 3,600 ft.
