  • 20th Anniversary of Flight 261
    Updated On: Jan 27, 2020
    Dear Members:
    Friday, January 31, 2020, marks the
    20 Year Anniversary of the Alaska
    Airlines Flight 261 accident. The
    accident occurred at approximately
    4:22 PM off the southern California
    coast, just north of Los Angeles,
    where 88 people lost their lives.
    Almost half of those on board were
    non-revenue passengers that were
    connected with Alaska Air Group,
    with Alaska Airlines or Horizon Air.
    It was a devastating and difficult
    time. I would like to share this
    reminder with our members to take a moment and reflect on this accident that played a major
    role in reshaping the safety culture not only at Alaska Airlines, but across the entire airline
    industry.
    There were many lessons learned from this tragic event as we conducted the accident
    investigation. Aircraft design and how maintenance programs were developed, approved, and
    modified -- including inspection protocols, practice of in-flight troubleshooting and aircraft
    defect reporting -- were all scrutinized. All of these factors were addressed in the National
    Transportation Safety Board’s recommendations to the Federal Aviation Administration.
    We must continue to take the lessons learned from this tragic accident to make our profession
    better. We must guard against the influences that can put pressures on operations that can
    jeopardize safety. If you haven’t already done so, please take time to go to the Safety &
    Standards page of the AMFA National website to review the various safety articles, the Safety
    Initiative presentation, and the Safety in the Air Video. In our profession we must always
    remain vigilant.
    There will be a memorial gathering on January 31 starting at 3:00 PM at the Flight 261
    Monument in Port Hueneme, CA. Families and friends are all invited to attend.
    Sincerely,
    Louie Key
    AEI Secretary of the Americas
