World Airways Flight 30 was a McDonnell Douglas DC-10-30CF airliner which suffered a fatality incident upon landing at Boston Logan International Airport in Boston, Massachusetts, after departing Newark International Airport on January 23, 1982.
The DC-10-30CF touched down beyond the displaced threshold. Under normal circumstances such an incident would have been of minor importance and the plane would have had sufficient space to come to a full stop on the long runway. However, the runway was covered in ice and the braking action was poor to nil (though reported to the pilots as "fair to poor").
When it became apparent that the aircraft was not going to be able to stop on the runway, and since there was insufficient space remaining on the runway to take off again ("touch and go"), the pilots steered the plane off the runway in order to avoid hitting approach lights beyond the runway, . The plane then skidded across a field and a taxiway before coming to rest in the waters of the Boston Harbor.〔(World Airways, Inc., Flight 30H, McDonnell Douglas DC-10-30CF, N113WA, Boston-Logan Int'l Airport, Boston, Massachusetts, Jan. 23, 1982 (Revised) ) (AAR-85-06) Aircraft accident report by the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board, adopted July 10, 1985.〕
The part of the DC-10-30CF that housed the aircraft cockpit and forward galley separated from the main body of the aircraft, submerging the first row of passenger seats. Two passengers seated in that row were never found and presumed dead; the third passenger in that row climbed back into the main cabin.〔
Documentarian and television show host Justine Shapiro was a survivor.〔('Globe Trekker': South Africa )〕
