Incidents and accidents
- On 8 February 1978, douglas C-49J N189UM of Aero Service Corporation was damaged beyond repair in a landing accident at Tamanrasset.
- On 6 March 2003 Air Algérie Flight 6289 crashed at 3:45 pm local time (1445 GMT). The flight was leaving Tamanrasset bound for Algiers with the co-pilot acting as pilot-in-command. At a height of 78 feet and a speed of 158 kts, the No. 1 engine suffered a turbine failure. The captain took control. The co-pilot asked if she should raise the gear, but the captain did not respond. The Boeing 737-200 lost speed, stalled, and broke up on rocky terrain about 1600 metres past the runway. The accident was caused by the loss of an engine during a critical phase of flight, the non-retraction of the landing gear after the engine failure, and the Captain taking over control of the airplane before having clearly identified the problem. There were 102 fatalities and one survivor.
