Random Cutting - Air crash in Washington (1949)

Click to Read
This November 1949 collision between a Douglas DC4 Skymaster and a Lockhead P38 Lightning near Washington Airport happened much as described in the cutting. A subsequent inquiry by the  Civil Aeronautics Board put the majority of the blame on the jet's Bolivian pilot but also critised the Air Traffic Controllers.
