This Day In Wrecks
1966: Less than a day after the crash of Canadian Pacific Air Lines Flight 402 at Tokyo Airport, BOAC Flight 911 takes off with the wreckage still visible. The 707 is bound for Hong Kong; soon after takeoff the plane breaks up and crashes in pieces near Mt. Fuji. It is believed that severe clear air turbulence caused the structural failure of the plane, leading to the death of all 124 on board.
