Accidents & Serious Incidents involving CRJ1

  • B738 / CRJ1, New York La Guardia USA, 2007 (HF RI) (On 5 July 2007, in daylight and good visibility, a Comair CRJ100 on an outbound scheduled service flight was cleared by a GND Controller to taxi across active runway 22 on which a Delta AL Boeing 737-800 also operating a scheduled service flight had already been cleared to land by the (TWR) local controller. The crossing to be made did not allow the CRJ100 crew to see up the runway towards the landing threshold until they had almost completed the crossing. When they did see the by then landed B738 coming towards them, they immediately increased thrust on the single operating engine to accelerate clear. The FAA account of the incident classified the incursion at low risk with a 3200 ft minimum separation between the two aircraft.)
  • CRJ1 / A320, Baltimore MD USA, 2007 (RI HF) (On 2 December 2007, at Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, after controller error, a CRJ-100 operated by Comair with a valid take-off clearance missed by 400 ft vertically and 400 ft horizontally an Airbus A320, which just landed with also valid clearance on an intersecting runway.)
  • CRJ1, Kinshasa Democratic Republic of Congo, 2011 (LOC HF WX) (On 4 April 2011, the crew of a Georgian Airways Bombardier CRJ100 operating a domestic flight for the United Nations lost control of their aircraft as they commenced a go around from below the MDA for the non precision approach flown due to an absence of visual reference with the runway. They were aware from their weather radar of severe convective weather in the vicinity of the airport although the METAR passed by ATC did not indicate this. The aircraft crashed alongside the runway and was destroyed. All occupants except one who was seriously injured were killed.)
  • CRJ1, Lexington KY USA, 2006 (HF RE FIRE) (On 27 August 2006, a CRJ100ER, belonging to Comair, crashed after taking off from the wrong runway at Lexington, Kentucky, USA.)
  • CRJ1, Southampton UK, 2007 (RE HF AW) (On 17 January 2007, a Bombardier CRJ 100 being operated by French airline Brit Air on a scheduled night passenger flight from Paris CDG to Southampton could not be directionally controlled after touchdown on a dry surface in normal visibility and almost calm winds and departed the side of the runway during the landing roll. There were no injuries to any of the 36 occupants and there was no damage to the aircraft.)
