                                           Flight Hellios522

September 29, 1997, Larnaca Airport, Cypres

Andreas Prodromou greets her girlfriend that works for Hellios on the "Olympia" jet. The jet is going to Athens. Andreas was a last minute crewman. He is a flight attendant and a future pilot. He hopes to be a captain for Hellios Airways. The passengers board the plane. Captain Hans Murton and his co-pilot relaxes and does flightly jet stats tests. A few minutes after takeoff an alarms activates. The particular alarm was only activated if the plane isn't ready for takeoff. Then another alarm goes off. The pilots radio the tower at Larnaca Airport. Before the ATCs and answer the pilot's question, the oxygen masks fall and the pilots are unaware. The passengers quickly put them on. There is a rapid decompression in the cabin. Then hypoxia sets in. Hypoxia is a pathological sickness. The people in the plane experience headaches, fatigue,  loss of breath, and nausea. They finally fall unconscious. 2 hours later the Hellenic Air Force sends out 2 F-16s to investigate. The first pilot flies to the side to the Boeing 737 and the second flies behind the plane in shooting position in case of a terrorist attack. The first pilot sees the cockpit. The co-pilot has slumped over in his chair, affected by the hypoxia. The fighter pilot cannot see the captain, who is spawled on the floor of the cockpit. The F-12 spots the fallen oxygen masks. Suddenly a person sits down on the captain's seat seemingly struggling to control the plane. It's Andreas! He lives the decompression using the "monkey swing method" to get across the plane. He uses the 3 oxygen bottles on the plane to stay awake. Andreas spots the fighters and signals. The fighter pilot points forward asking if the plane can "carry on any more". Andreas nods no and signals MAYDAY. Then the Boeing's left wing runs out of fuel. The plane sharply veers left. Then the right engine runs out of fuel. The plane rapidly descends toward the ground. It slams into the mountains near Grammatikos, Greece. It descends, hits the ground, bounces, and explodes. All 161 passengers died including Andreas and his girlfriend, Hans Murton the pilot, and his co-pilot.

3 hours of terror.
The story of Flight Hellios522. Dedicated to Andreas Prodromou, the bravest man in aviation.

This is one of my fav ACI crashes of all time...(Excluding American 191). Epic descent, crash into terrain, bounce and boom! Very exciting, I was on the edge of my seat the whole time...
