Good article 1999 South Dakota Learjet crash has been listed as one of the Engineering and technology good articles under the good article criteria. If you can improve it further, please do so. If it no longer meets these criteria, you can reassess it.


Article creation[edit]

This article has been created after discussion on the Learjet 35/36 talk page. Given the extraordinary circumstances of this accident, it certainly meets all notability criteria.

The name was selected based on a general naming convention for disasters, which is <<year>> <<place>> <<event>>. I have deliberately not included Stewart's name in the title, for the same reasons that it was inappropriate to include Cory Lidle's name in the title of the article 2006 New York City plane crash (for a discussion of this, see Talk:2006 New York City plane crash#Rename to 2006 New York City plane crash or Cory Lidle plane crash

The article is based, so far, mainly on the NTSB accident, portions of which are included directly, as the NTSB is a public domain document. There's a lot more information from the NTSB files which I'll be culling through, but this, at least, is a start. Any and all are invited to join in the project.

I remember I had been going to start this article some time. Well, I'm glad you beat me to the job; really great work, unfaultable so far. I will lend a hand, however, at some point, once the Adam Air Flight 574 article has calmed down a bit. Blood Red Sandman Open Up Your Heart - Receive My EviLove 07:26, 15 January 2007 (UTC)

Good Article[edit]

I have passed 1999 South Dakota Learjet crash as a Good Article, because, well, it passes all the criteria. It's interesting and well written, it has citations and images (although there is room for improvement with a couple images) with good captions. It's stable, has a NPOV, and includes more than just basic information about the crash. Good job! – Dok(talk|contribs) 16:09, 29 March 2007 (UTC)

Similar incidents[edit]

A couple of thoughts about the "Similar Incidents" Section. First of all, I came to this page from the Helios Airways Flight 522 article, and it seems like a very similar incident that should be included. However, with 7 or 8 similar incidents, it seems that a substantial part of this article is now not actually about the title crash. Certainly we don't have enough for a devoted list page, but if there are separate articles for the various other incidents we might just be better off creating links rather than summarizing. Another idea: If the similar incidents all fall within a nicely deliniated categorization of aircraft issues, we could have a devoted page to those types of issues, with a link and a little blurb.

Thoughts?

When I created this article, the intent was to eventually spin the similar incidents which didn't warrant an article of their own off onto a separate hypoxia-related page. We currently have the article Hypoxia (medical) and there's enough material, both from the incidents and the actual aviation medicine perspective to do a separate article on it (maybe called Hypoxia (aviation)?). Just haven't gotten there yet.... AKRadeckiSpeaketh 05:18, 14 August 2007 (UTC)


The phrase "in the last thirty years" has no value and should be deleted. 75.222.164.5 (talk) 04:47, 3 January 2010 (UTC)

  • Only four "similar incidents" are listed. All four occurred in the last thirty years. If the expression in the last thirty years were to be deleted it could give the impression that there were no similar incidents prior to 1980. The original objective seems to have been to indicate that the list of similar incidents is not an exhaustive list, and only considers incidents that have occurred in the last thirty years. I would only be in favour of deleting the words in the last thirty years if alternative wording is added to indicate that similar incidents did occur in the decades up to 1980, even though no examples are given from that early time period.

Lear jets at 39,000 feet?[edit]

Since when do lear jets fly at 39,000 feet? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.239.250.100 (talk) 23:52, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

The aircraft in question was a Lear 35. FAA Type Certificate Data Sheet No. A10CE shows that this model has a maximum operating altitude of 45,000 feet. See [1] and go to page 10 of 39. Dolphin (t) 01:52, 21 March 2014 (UTC)
