25 September 1978 - PSA 182

Pacific Southwest Airlines (PSA) Flight 182, registration N533PS, was a Boeing 727-214 commercial airliner that collided over San Diego, California with a private Cessna 172 on September 25, 1978. The death toll of 144 makes it the deadliest aircraft disaster in California history to date, and it was the first Pacific Southwest Airlines accident involving fatalities. It was also the deadliest plane crash in the history of the United States until American Airlines Flight 191 went down eight months later.

The Boeing crashed into North Park, a San Diego neighborhood, killing all 135 on board. The two men aboard the Cessna died, as did seven people on the ground, including two children. Nine others on the ground were injured and 22 homes were destroyed or damaged.

Gibbs Flite Center Cessna 172 aircraft had taken off from Montgomery Field at 08.16 PST and proceeded to Lindbergh Field were two practice ILS approaches to runway 9 were flown. At 09.00 the Cessna pilot was instructed to maintain VFR at or below 3500ft, heading 70deg. PSA Flight 182 (a scheduled passenger flight from Sacramento to San Diego via Los Angeles), cleared for a runway 27 approach, was advised by the approach controller that there was traffic in front of them. The PSA crew reported the traffic in sight immediately thereafter and the PSA flight was instructed to maintain visual separation and contact Lindbergh tower. Lindbergh tower again warned the PSA flight crew of "traffic, twelve o'clock, one mile, a Cessna". The crew had lost track of the Cessna and radioed back: "think he's passing off to our right". The flight crew still weren't sure of the actual position of the Cessna. At 09.01:28 a conflict alert warning began in the San Diego Approach Control facility, indicating a collision hazard between PSA182 and the Cessna. At 09.01:47 the approach controller warned the Cessna pilot of traffic in the vicinity. At the same moment both aircraft collided. Flight 182 was descending and overtaking the Cessna, which was climbing in a wings level attitude. The Cessna broke up immediately and exploded after colliding with the Boeing's right wing. The Boeing entered a shallow right descending turn and crashed into a residential area.

Most likely pilot overconfidence/incompetence.

Pilots know everything. I used to be one for awhile.

(Edit) Shit happens as pilot-in-command. I could tell you some scary stories. That's why I always carried a little pliers in my flight bag, I could tune the NavGear that had broken knobs.

Still didn't prevent me from accidently flying into controlled airspace.

Ann Arbor approach: 757RN, we don't see you. Do you see two intersecting runways?

757RN: That's affirm, I see two runways... Three, four, five runways. Stand by one...

Ann Arbor approach: 757RN turn left immediately heading 270, maintain altitude!

757RN: I already did that Ann Arbor.

FWIW, I was flying into Willow Run, south of Detroit, I think. That was back in the bad ol' days before GPS.

Hey, those guys were why I only bought Canadian silver and gold. I figured that I had a better chance with the Mounties than with the IRS goons with M16/4s and MRAPS. Been there, done that before.

My buddy asked me how much I was paying my lawn-guy the other day when he trailered back a wood chipper that I never wanted to see again.

Dickhead: How much you paying that kid (45)?

Me: 18 bux,

D: You said you were paying him in silver before. That was your cost?

Me: Yeah, for two ounces.

D: What's that worth today?

Me: I dunno, If I was going to sell it, I might get $23/oz before shipping and handling and hassle. His cost to buy might be $32-40 in- hand, we're both doing OK.

D: He's gonna have his buddies take you hostage to get the rest.

Me: So what? Then I'll take their guns away from them and kill them.

GodAlmighty, why is everybody so afraid of death now? It would be a great relief to me now, but I'm too much of a coward to do it to myself, not to mention the Creator's thoughts on that.

I'm starting to be a little nonplussed with Odin at this point.

Hang around long enough and you'll turn from Tom Cruise in "Days of Thunder" into Sergeant Barnes in "Platoon" like I did.

I never thought that I'd get old, yet I'm still here 10+ years after my expiration date. Here I am, still. You might be surprised if you ever saw me face-to-face, I look younger than guys 10-20 my junior. Don't understand that much, but that may be why no one has ever taken me seriously.

The state of Indiana has known who I am for a long time, but my driver license came due earlier this month. It took three months to get a birth certificate and a SS card reissued, but by God, I'm still me, I think. Unless someone SWATs me again, I should be good to go until the end.

The US military had some fun spooking a Japanese jet, probing the pilots' perceptions afterward and -- tyrants that they are -- ordering them to forget it. How great that the captain kept his originals.

In Payton's case, at 39k feet, it's likely all on board were dead before the plane ran out of fuel.

Is that the implication here -- the pilot saw passengers but they seemed to be inert? Or am I think if another recent page.

We don't have any indication of what happened in the cockpit of Payton's plane as there are no voice recorders and such in lear jets. I watch these airline catastrophes every now and then and don't recall any case like what you describe.

Maybe I'm getting the 2 flights mixt up. 7:06 in your video at top = the pilot of the fighter jet takes a closer look at the liner's passenger area, sees passengers but they're showing no reaction to the other aircraft.

That's the Helios flight, a Greece-based commercial airline flight. Okay, yes the pilot was the F-16 pilot looking into the passenger cabin of the airliner.
