One Of The Worst Disasters In U.S. History Happened Right Here In Arizona

Flying has become such a routine method of travel that sometimes it can be difficult to remember that the fairly new technology was once incredibly risky. When traveling by air became more common in the 1950s, crashes, near misses, and fatalities occurred several times per year but little was done to better regulate the skies. It wasn’t until several large commercial airline crashes that resulted in mass deaths that changes were made. One of those incidents happened right here in Arizona.
