The Terrifying, Deadly Plane Crash In Hawaii That Will Never Be Forgotten

While airplanes have been proven to be the safest method of travel, it doesn’t remove the anxiety many people have about air travel. Unfortunately, accidents can happen, and the deadliest plane crash in Hawaiian history is one that will never be forgotten.

Just a few years before Hawaii became an official American State, in 1955, a United States Navy airplane carrying 66 crew members and passengers crashed in Oahu’s Waianae Mountains on March 22, 1955, killing everyone on board and lighting up the sky with a fiery explosion.
