    I also realized that there was another incident involving an attempted pilot suicide...and that was a few years ago on a FedEx plane when a standby pilot attacked the crew after takeoff with a hammer and a spear gun. Bizarre.

    This series is addictive...Air Crash Investigation/Mayday. The forensic work is really cool as are the reinactments of the accidents. They've covered all of the incidents folks have referred to here.

    The FedEx Incident:



    Egypt Air 990:



    SilkAir 185:
