Air Florida Flight 90

“Larry, we’re going down, Larry,” “I know it.” This day in 1982, Air Florida Flight 90 took off from DC National Airport, in heavy snow, with insufficiently de-iced wings. A minute after takeoff, the plane crashed into the packed 14th Street Bridge, crushing several cars before falling into the Potomac River and sinking into the icy water.
