1912 - Titanic: the maiden voyage from Southampton to New York City

The Titanic was the largest passenger steamship in the world at the time of her launching, and her builders hoped that she would dominate the transatlantic ocean liner business. During her maiden voyage she struck an iceberg and sank, on April 14, 1912, at 11:40 P.M. The sinking resulted in great loss of life, ranking as one of the worst peacetime maritime disasters in history, and by far the most famous.

1937 - Hindenburg disaster: The End of Airships, Explosion of the Lakehurst

On May 6, 1937 at 19:25, the German zeppelin LZ 129 Hindenburg caught fire and was utterly destroyed within a minute while attempting to dock with its mooring mast at Lakehurst Naval Air Station in New Jersey. Of the 97 people on board, 13 passengers and 22 crew-members were killed. One member of the ground crew also died, bringing the death toll to 36. The LZ-129 Hindenburg and her sister-ship LZ-130 Graf Zeppelin II were the two largest aircraft ever built. The Hindenburg was named after the President of Germany, Paul von Hindenburg. It was a brand-new, all-aluminium design: 245 m long (804 feet), 41 m in diameter (135 ft), containing 200,000 m³ (7,060,000 ft³) of gas in 16 bags or cells, with a useful lift of 112.1 metric tons force (1.099 MN), powered by four 1200 horsepower (890 kW) Mercedes Benz engines giving it a maximum speed of 135 km/h (84 mph). It could carry 72 passengers (50 transatlantic) and had a crew of 61.

1986 - The nuclear disaster: Chernobyl

The Chernobyl accident occurred on April 26th, 1986, at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in Ukraine (then part of the Soviet Union). It is regarded as the worst nuclear accident in the history of nuclear power. It produced a plume of radioactive debris that drifted over parts of the western Soviet Union, Eastern Europe, and Scandinavia. Large areas of Ukraine, Belarus, and Russia were contaminated resulting in the evacuation and resettlement of roughly 200,000 people. About 60 percent of radioactive fallout landed in Belarus. The accident raised concerns about the safety of the Soviet nuclear power industry, slowing its expansion for a number of years, while forcing the Soviet government to become less secretive. The now-separate countries of Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus have been burdened with continuing and substantial costs for decontamination and health care because of the Chernobyl accident.

Airplane crash: Air France Flight 296, Airbus A320

Air France Flight 296 was a chartered flight of a new fly-by-wire Airbus A320-111 operated by Air France. On June 26, 1988, it was flying over Mulhouse-Habsheim Airport (ICAO code LFGB) as part of an air show. The low-speed fly-by was supposed to take place with landing gear down at an altitude of 100 feet (30 m). Instead, the plane slowly descended to 30 feet, and crashed into treetops at the end of the runway. Three passengers died. This was the first crash of an Airbus A320. The cause of the accident is disputed, as many irregularities were later revealed by the accident investigation.
