Description: On 4th October 1992, at about 6.30 in the evening, El Al cargo flight LY 1862 from Amsterdam to Tel Aviv, a Boeing 747-200, crashed into a 12-story block of flats in Bijlmer, on the outskirts of Amsterdam, killing its crew of three, a "non-revenue passenger", and at least 43 people on the ground. Because some of the people in Bijlmer were migrants, who were without documents, the full number of victims remains unknown. Two of the plane's engines had broken off the right wing and it crashed trying to return to Schiphol airport. The plane's cargo included, amongst other things: bullets, spare parts for AIM-9 Sidewinder missiles, spare parts for Patriot missiles and 190 litres of dimethyl methylphosphonate, used in the synthesis of Sarin nerve gas. The plane, like all Boeing 747s at that time, also contained about 400 kg of depleted uranium as trim weight in the tail, a fact unknown during the recovery effort.
