Phil 737
Gol Transportes Aéreos Flight 1907 (ICAO: GLO 1907) was a Boeing 737-8EH, registration PR-GTD, on a scheduled domestic passenger flight from Manaus, Brazil, to Rio de Janeiro. On 29 September 2006, Local time 16:48 BRT, it collided in midair with an Embraer Legacy business jet over the Brazilian state of Mato Grosso. All 154 passengers and crew aboard the Boeing 737 died when the aircraft broke up in midair and crashed into an area of dense rainforest, while the Embraer Legacy, despite sustaining serious damage to its left wing and tail, landed safely with its seven occupants uninjured. The accident, which triggered a crisis in Brazilian civil aviation, was the deadliest in that country's aviation history at the time, surpassing VASP Flight 168, which crashed in 1982 with 137 fatalities near Fortaleza. It was subsequently surpassed by TAM Airlines Flight 3054, which crashed on 17 July 2007 with 199 fatalities. It was also the deadliest aviation accident involving a Boeing 737 (all series) aircraft at that time. It was again surpassed by Air India Express Flight 812, which crashed at Mangalore, India, on 22 May 2010 with 158 fatalities. Thanks AirbusA330 for the 737, and AN777 for both the 737 and Legacy, Mr. Lion for the fan blades, and me for N600XL. #1907 #737 #737800 #7378EH #Aereos #Air #Boeing #Collision #Crash #Embrear_Legacy_600 #Flight #GOL #Mid #N600XL #PRGTD #Transportes
