New York La Guardia Airport
Flight 795 LGA-DEN March 1994


The aircraft skidded off runway13 when the pilots aborted the takeoff due to inefficient speed. The investigation revealed the the aircraft was actually at V1 at the time of the abort. The Pitot heat had not been turned on by the pilots which allowed ice to build up in the pitot tubes and cause erroneous speed readings

Boeing 737-800  Ship #N2221

This Continental Airlines Boeing 737-800 (N2221) was coming out of the Greenville airport in the state of Mississippi where it had been completely repainted. Two pilots came to take possession and drove for a positioning flight to Houston, Texas. From that day, the plane would continue its career in the colors of United Airlines after the merger of it with Continental. No passengers or other crew members were on board.A faulty water pipe caused erosion under the tarmac leaving the concrete unsupported. Under the weight of the plane, a slab gave way. The left landing gear fell into the hole and was twisted backwards. The reactor and the left wing hit the ground and the plane came to a stop.Safe and sound, the pilots were able to escape from behind.

"I guess this plane didnt want the United Name painted on it"
