Incidents

  • An airliner from New York almost hit another airliner that was taxiing, the pilot did not care and commented on the near miss with "Hey, I'm landing here!"
  • Homer Simpson went to The Little Black Box, the last bar in Springfield after being kicked out of Moe's Tavern. Then he was sent to take charge of a flight to Chicago-O'Hare (although he didn't realize how to fly a plane). When he got into the Air Springfield Airbus A340, he accidentally raised the landing gear while parked on the apron. No one sustained any serious injuries.[1]
  • An Air Springfield Airbus A340 over-ran the runway and plunged into the river. The crew and passengers survived as well.[2]
  • An airliner crashed into and destroyed the wall of the TV room in the Simpsons House, the pilot apologized and reversed the plane out of the house.
  • While the Simpsons were going to a wedding, there was a delay, due to airport incompetence, so the aircraft had turned off the engines, the crew stopped the passengers from leaving the plane and allowed the ethnic passengers to eat their weird, fowl smelling and unusual home cooked food. (One man eat a goat's head and drunk blood from the goat's eye.) This left them trapped in the heat for seven hours straight. When the crew revealed that there was still no word for takeoff clearance, Homer was forbidden from using the lavatory, He angrily started to make a mockery about how airlines don't treat people like people anymore, the air marshall attempted to stop him but Homer got onto the wing. This made the aircraft turn to the left side and made everyone in the plane clap and cheer after he was stopped by security. But little did they know, Bart had recorded everything on his digital camera. This would make Homer famous.
  • The Plywood Pelican was heading for Springfield International Airport but the wing snapped off during flight, the plane crashed into Springfield Town Square, no one was injured but Chief Wiggum was woken from his nap, he attempted to fine the pilot but didn't because of the his services to the down (smuggling drugs from Canada).
  • Springfield mayor Joe Quimby attempted to hijack a Boeing 747.
  • The Simpsons chose to go on a mega-saver vacation. They boarded at the very last minute an Air Japan Boeing 747-200, stealing the vacation from the Flanderses. During climbing, Bart Simpson was playing his Gameboy when a female flight attendant told him it wasn't safe to play it yet. Bart replies "You're the watress" and presses the "Shutdown" button, which causes the 747-200 to nosedive. Then the flight attendant pleaded him to turn it back on, bringing it back to its normal position.[3]
  • Just before a Delta Airlines Boeing 757 finishes the Minneapolis-Springfield-Atlanta route, Bart (seated in 33C) takes off the seatbelt in defiance of the captain's instructions, forcing it to turn back to its starting point. In the aftermath, Bart is placed onto the no fly list.[4]
  • When the Simpsons were flying to Italy, Homer tried to find a TV screen in his armrest, just like there are in first class. He found cables and he pulls them, causing the leftmost engine of the right wing of a Boeing 747SP to fall from the plane and land in Cletus Spucklers' farm.[5]
