On 24 August 2001, Air Transat Flight 236 ran out of fuel while flying over the ocean. The pilots safely glided and landed the aircraft at a naval base in the Azores. The fuel starvation was caused by improper maintenance work which allowed a hydraulic oil pipe and a fuel pipe to rub together resulting in the fracture of the fuel pipe causing a leak.
On 1 June 1999, American Airlines Flight 1420 tried to land at the Little Rock National Airport during a storm but overran the runway killing eleven people. The crash was caused by the crew not extending the spoilers during their pre-landing checks.
