This B-29 made it back from a mission over Japan with only two good engines on the left side. Cannon fire disabled two engines on the right side, causing one of the propellers to spin off and slash a hole in the fuselage. The crew was still able to fly the crippled plane fifteen hundred miles back to Saipan at about five hundred feet above the ocean. Seventeen hours after they had taken off, they slammed down on the runway at Isley Field. The crew survuved.

B-29-20-BA Superfortress (s/n 42-63489) named "Holy Joe" from the 881st Bomb Squadron, 500th Bomb Group, 20th Air Force and flown by Capt. James Pearson. Capt. Pearson flew this plane back from a mission to Tokyo with two engines out, both on the same side. After 17 hours of flying time he was landing at base when a runaway propeller cut the entire front of the fuselage off.

The strange, sad, and the bizarre became everyday occurences as the missions flown from Saipan rolled on. This particular B-29, or what’s left of it, made it back from a mission over Japan with only two good engines on the left side. Cannon fire disabled two engines on the right side, causing one of the propellers to spin off and slash a hole in the fuselage. The crew was still able to fly the crippled plane fifteen hundred miles back to Saipan at about five hundred feet above the ocean. Seventeen hours after they had taken off, they slammed down on the runway at Isley Field. The plane immediately lost hydraulic pressure and careened out of control down the runway with no brakes. It veered to the left, slammed into a parked B-29, and broke in two where the runaway propeller had perforated the fuselage. As the remnants of the giant airplane ground to a stop, the dazed crew emerged from the wreckage, and later posed for this photo.

was caused by the computer malfunction, which then caused the B-2 to stall. It marked the first crash of a B-2, one of the Air Force’s most expensive and sophisticated aircraft. There had been only 21 B-2 bombers in use, and the estimated cost of the lost aircraft is $1.4 billion.
At a staggering $2 billion per plane, Northrop Grumman’s B-2 Spirit Stealth Bomber is a delicate piece of kit that must be handled with care. But in February 2008, moisture that seeped into a B-2’s computerised control system on takeoff from Andersen AFB, Guam, caused the massive jet to go haywire. Both pilots ejected as aircraft 89-0127 ‘Spirit of Kansas’ cartwheeled into the ground, quickly transformed from state of the art bomber into the most expensive crash in US Air Force history.

Here we have our first billion dollar accident (and were only #7 on the list). This B-2 stealth bomber crashed shortly after taking off from an air base in Guam on February 23, 2008. Investigators blamed distorted data in the flight control computers caused by moisture in the system. This resulted in the aircraft making a sudden nose-up move which made the B-2 stall and crash. This was 1 of only 21 ever built and was the most expensive aviation accident in history. Both pilots were able to ejec

This plane crashed on a beach in Mexico. It is told, that this was a drug courier. After the crash, the crew abandoned the plane and the drugs. Travellers staying nearby must have had some VERY enjoyable weeks after the incident. Well, maybe just rumors - but who knows?

In 1943, commanded by 1st Lt. Raymond S. Dau. of Arlington, Virginia, this Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress took off from Port Moresby to attack a Japanese convoy off Lae. But anti-aircraft fire struck the bomber, forcing Dau to crash land near Papua New Guinea’s Black Cat Pass. The crew survived the landing but radio operator Robert Albright later died from his wounds. The B-17, now known as the Gray Ghost, remains in remarkable condition to this day.
This well preserved Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress was originally bound for the UK under the terms of a lend-lease agreement before Pacific theatre duties sealed its fate.

This remarkably intact Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress was one of 32 aircraft built for the Royal Air Force on a lend-lease agreement in 1942. But, prior to delivery, the aircraft were reassigned to the 5th Air Force in a bid to cope with the demands of the Pacific Theater of Operations. Hastily repainted in U.S. markings, this aircraft, later dubbed the "Gray Ghost", made a spectacular crash landing near Black Cat Pass in Papua, New Guinea in 1943, where it has rested ever since.
'Gray Ghost' B-17 Flying Fortress was bound for the UK, but Pacific Theatre duties saw it diverted to Papua New Guinea and hastily repainted in US colours. In 1943, it left Port Moresby to attack a Japanese convoy off Lae, but was crippled by anti-aircraft fire. The Flying Fortress crash landed near Black Cat Pass in Papua New Guinea, breaking its back amidships but otherwise remaining reasonably intact. The crew survived the crash but radio operator later died from his wounds.

But anti-aircraft fire crippled the B-17, forcing the pilot to crash land near Black Cat Pass in Papua New Guinea. The crew survived, but radio operator Robert Albright later died from his wounds. The abandoned aircraft remains intact and has become a popular tourist attraction in the area, gaining the nickname the Gray Ghost.
