  • Can anybody help me out with finding details on this crash?

    Hi,

    I was talking to my mom today, and she was telling me about a plane crash which occurred in Bombay. She doesn't remember the exact year, though she says it was definitely between 1960 and 1980.

    She also thinks that most probably the airline was Japan Air Lines, though she is not sure. She does not know which aircraft it was.

    However, she does remember one thing. It was most probably a JAL flight which landed at the Bombay Flying Club accidentally, instead of the international airport. Since the runway at the flying club was too short, it overshot, and crashed through a wall.

    I have been trying to find details about this crash all over. I even checked AirDisaster, but to no avail.

    Can somebody help me out here, with finding details about this crash?

    Remember thoughm it just may not be JAL - that is what she remembers.

    But it is definitely between 1960 and 1980.

    Help me please.

    Thanks,
    Tanuj.

      No, it wasn't Delhi, it was Bombay.

      And it might not be JAL.

      Sorry for the vagueness.......

              Thanks for the help guyz, it's none of those.

              Scott, the reason it isn't the one you gave is because it didn't fall down a cliff, it overran a really short runway at the flying club (where it wasn't supposed to land anyway) and crashed into a wall.
