Turkish Airlines Flight 981 was a McDonnell Douglas DC-10 that crashed outside Paris, France on 3 March 1974, killing all 346 people on board. The accident, also known as the “Ermenonville air disaster” from the forest where the aircraft crashed, is the deadliest accident involving a DC-10, has the fourth highest aviation death count ever, the second highest death count of a single-plane crash, and was the highest death toll of any crash until the Tenerife airport disaster three years later.
