Sudden failure of aircraft is a transient failure, always difficult to prevent for its quick and random occurrence. However, it has an evolutionary process from gradual change to sudden change, therefore the sudden failure of aircraft can be reduce or eliminate through the understanding its evolutionary mechanism. In this paper, the fatal accidents of aircraft are analyzed, produced causes of aircraft sudden failure are researched, and the formed process of aircraft sudden failure can be divided into three stages including gradual change, sudden change and sudden occurrence. It has important meaning to know evolution laws of aircraft sudden failure and prevent its occurrence. © 2011 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
