Asiana Flight 214
In July 2013, a South Korean airliner (a Boeing 777) was on its way to San Francisco. In what had been an uneventful flight, a misjudged approach led to the plane clipping a sea wall before crashing and bursting into flames.
Unfortunately, there were three fatalities and almost 200 passengers suffered injuries. A subsequent investigation by The National Transportation Safety Board discovered that pilot fatigue was one of the contributing human factors. The accident highlights the risks associated with over reliance on automation and lack of flying currency.
In June 2014 in Western Germany, a training exercise was taking place involving a Learjet and Eurofighter Typhoons. After banking left, the Learjet collided with one of the Typhoons, going into a tailspin. The Typhoon involved sustained damaged in the collision but was able to land safely.
Unfortunately, there was a mid-air explosion on the Learjet and a body was discovered amongst the wreckage, with the other person on board still being unaccounted for at the time of writing.
