A Turkish Airlines passenger Flight 1951, Airbus 727 carrying 135 people aboard crashed on landing at Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport. All passengers except Five escaped the crash alive, injuring only 20. No fire broke out.
The plane, on a flight from Istanbul, broke up in three pieces when it hit the fields next to the runway.
The breaking up of plane in three pieces helped in passengers surviving the crash. Few years ago, all the people would have died in such a crash but these days it seems that the aircraft safety has increased by leap and bounds.
