Listing is never fair but:

You left out AirFrance A330 into the south Atlantic
And, the AirFrance off the end in Canada.
Not to mention, of course, the BA 777, short at LHR.
Airfrance over run :- Pilot error, landing in a heavy thunderstorm.
Air France A330 :- Cause, as yet, unknown, speculation as to unreliable airspeed.
BA777 :- Caused by ice build up leading to loss of thrust above idle, simultaneously on both engines at low level spool up. Crew commended for rapid handling decisions which avoided a much worse incident.

numb-nuts? Possibly in one case for a bad decision. The other unkown and the final one definitively not.
