Below follow some sentence examples (which I copied and pasted from the Internet) with either "crashed" or "crash landed":
1) The plane crashed (or crash landed) at San Francisco International Airport in 2013.
2) In 2012, a plane crashed or crash landed about two miles south of the Las Cruces airport.
3) TransAsia flight GE235 has crashed in Taiwan.
The authors (or writers) of sentence examples 1) and 2) used both terms on a single line. But the author (or writer) of sentence example 3) used "crashed" only.
The reader, however, will readily assume all the airplanes in the examples "fell hard on the ground, which lead to their inevitable destruction and the death of all, some or at least one of their passengers."
Still, the question remains. Will ill-fated airplanes or at least those about to make a hard landing "crash" or "crash land"?
Do any of you have any ideas?
