The 2014 Goodner Mountain plane crash was a fatal aviation accident that occurred in a wooded, mountainous area off Goodner Mountain Road in northeast Jefferson County near Clay on February 14, 2014.

The Cessna 210L aircraft was en route from Jackson, Mississippi to Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport (BHM) to deliver blood samples to Birmingham. The pilot, Allan Campbell, and his wife, Cali, of Florence, Mississippi, were found deceased at the scene of the accident, 13 miles northeast of the airport. Campbell worked for the Louisiana-based company Southern Seaplane.

Due to the rugged terrain of the crash site, search and rescue efforts by the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office, Trussville Police Department, Trussville Fire Department, and Center Point Fire Department took several hours to locate the wreckage.
