Molte persone non si ricordano che oggi, 27 Marzo, a 48 ore di distanza dal disastro sulle Alpi francesi, ricorre il giorno del disastro aereo all'aeroporto di Tenerife, proprio il 27 Marzo 1977. E quest'anno, il 6 luglio, saranno 27 anni che ci separano dal disastro nell'OffShore di Aberdeen, dove morirono in quelle drammatiche ore 167 persone a bordo della piattaforma Piper Alpha.
Noi di INC vorremmo ricordare entrambi i due disastri, perchè da essi tutte le regolamentazioni in materia di trasporto e attività aerea e marittima cambiarono radicalmente.
Many people do not remember that today, March 27, at 48 hours away from the disaster of the French Alps, marks the day of the plane crash at the airport of Tenerife, its March 27, 1977. And this year, on July 6, will 27 years that separate us from disaster offshore Aberdeen, where they died in those dramatic hours 167 people aboard the Piper Alpha platform.
INC We would like to remind both the two disasters, because they all regulations governing the transport and business aviation and maritime changed radically.
A-The Tenerife airport disaster was a fatal runway collision between two Boeing 747s on Sunday, March 27, 1977 at Los Rodeos Airport (now Tenerife North Airport) on the Spanish island of Tenerife, one of theCanary Islands. The crash killed 583 people, making it the deadliest accident in aviation history. As a result of the complex interaction of organizational influences, environmental preconditions, and unsafe acts leading up to this aircraft mishap, the disaster at Tenerife has served as a textbook example for reviewing the processes and frameworks used in aviation mishap investigations and accident prevention.
A bomb explosion at Gran Canaria Airport, and the threat of a second bomb, caused many aircraft to be diverted to Los Rodeos Airport. Among them were KLM Flight 4805 and Pan Am Flight 1736 – the two aircraft involved in the accident. At Los Rodeos Airport, air traffic controllers were forced to park many of the airplanes on the taxiway, thereby blocking it. Further complicating the situation, while authorities waited to reopen Gran Canaria, a dense fog developed at Tenerife, greatly reducing visibility.
B- Piper Alpha was a North Sea oil production platform operated by Occidental Petroleum (Caledonia) Ltd. The platform began production in 1976, first as an oil platform and then later converted to gas production. An explosion and the resulting oil and gas fires destroyed it on 6 July 1988, killing 167 men, with only 61 survivors. The death toll included two crewmen of a rescue vessel. The total insured loss was about £1.7 billion (US$3.4 billion). At the time of the disaster, the platform accounted for approximately ten percent of North Sea oil and gas production, and was the accident was the worst offshore oil disaster in terms of lives lost and industry impact.
In honor of all people no more with us,
in all disasters lost
