Romania’s Deadliest Plane Crash: The Story Of TAROM Flight 371

The story of Romania’s deadliest plane crash and the series of events that led up to the demise of TAROM flight 371. On the 31st of March 1995, a TAROM Airbus A310-324, registered as YR-LCC, took off from Bucharest on route to Brussels. Sadly the plane crashed in a field a few minutes after takeoff killing all passengers and crew. Before we get into what caused the crash, it is essential to know that up until then, TAROM had a relatively good safety record despite flying mainly Soviet-built aircraft.

Flying Above the Clouds in a Powered Parachute Is Peaceful and Terrifying

Soaring high up in the air in little more than a motorized chair ain't for the faint of heart. A powered parachute, also known as a PPC, is the result of what happened when someone realized you could couple a parafoil with a paraglider. It allows one to fly without having to jump off of tall things thanks to its small engine, and without relying on thermals (columns of rising air) for additional lift. As demonstrated by @Oliveiron23 on TikTok, it can be a moving and peaceful experience to fly one, albeit with some unique risks.
