Air Crash Investigation Air France Flight 4590 Episode 3 National Geographic Documentary 2020 HD
Air France Flight 4590 was an international charter flight, from Charles de Gaulle Airport, Paris to John F. Kennedy International Airport, New York, flown by an Aérospatiale-BAC Concorde. On the afternoon of Tuesday, 25 July 2000 at 14:44:31 (UTC, 16:44:31 time local in France), the aircraft serving the flight (registration F-BTSC) ran over debris on the runway during takeoff, blowing a tyre, and sending debris flying into the underside of the left wing, and into the landing gear bay.
The fuel tank that was inside the left wing was unusually full, and the resulting lack of air space in the tank caused it to rupture and send fuel pouring outward with great force when debris from the tire struck the wing thus creating a shock wave that weakened the tank.
Date: 25 July 2000
Summary: Foreign object damage leading to in-flight fire and loss of control.
Total fatalities: 113 (109 on the aircraft, 4 on the Ground)
Total injuries: 1 (on ground)
