Description: Surinam Airways Flight PY764 was an international scheduled passenger flight from Amsterdam-Schiphol Airport in the Netherlands to Paramaribo-Zanderij International Airport in Suriname on a Surinam Airways DC-8. On June 7, 1989, the flight crashed during approach to Paramaribo-Zanderij, killing 176 of the 187 on-board, making it the worst ever aviation disaster in Suriname's history.

Investigation revealed significant deficiencies in the crew's training and judgement. They knowingly attempted to land using an inappropriate navigation signal and ignored alarms warning them of an impending crash. The safety issues stemming from the incident were of such concern that the American National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) issued safety recommendations to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
