Concorde Crash by Orval Fairbairn
Here is an interesting story on the crash that grounded the Concordes: http://www.askthepilot.com/untold-concorde-story/ It seems that the fire wasn't the cause of the crash -- it was basic airmanship.

Oshkosh Floobydust by [email protected]
Just found this thread. Are you talking about the idiot who flew into Oshkosh without a NOTAM and carried on a two-minute conversation with ATC? Just curious... I know that idiot.

The Discovery channel Crash of a 727 by a[_3_]
