Continental Airlines Flight 11 Crash, May 22, 1962eBook - 2016
Continental Airlines was in business for 28 years before it incurred its first airline fatalities. This happened near the border of Iowa and Missouri on the night of May 22, 1962. The plane was flying into a line of thunderstorms and received a warning as it neared its landing at Kansas City Municipal Airport. The airliner came down in bits and pieces before its fuselage crashed into a farm. The Boeing 707 which crashed was the same plane that was hijacked by two Arizona men in August 1961. The Civil Aeronautics Board found no connection between the hijacking and the subsequent crash. The jet sustained only minimal damage before it was surrounded by authorities in El Paso, Texas, on the day of the hijacking. --Provided by publisher.
