Notes:

Gimli Glider. Air Canada 143 ran out of fuel due to metric-imperial conversion error, in July 1983, and successfully landed in Gimli, Manitoba. The flight holds the 2nd longest distance covered by a jetliner without power, after the Air Transat A330 that lost both engines(also due to fuel) over the Atlantic in 2001 and landed safely.
