I do not even remember this accident happening. With the loss of life on the ground, I would think I would. This is just so sad and tragic. Two pins on the No. 3 engine pylon broke, causing that engine to explosively seperate from the wing, as this engine seperated it knocked the No. 4 engine off, and damaged over 30ft of the wing's leading edge.
The only thing sadder than this tragedy is the people who think there was a conspiracy involved who link this to 9/11 Spare Change.
National Geographic says that fourty-three were killed in this accident. This site gives a more concise description of the accident along with showing thirty-nine people died on the ground.
