Air travel is much safer than traveling by car, but every once in awhile something goes wrong and when a plane crashes, we tend to remember the tragedy for decades. In 1993, Governor Mickelson died, along with seven others, in a plane crash near Dubuqe, Iowa. Just a few years later, a crash with very unique circumstances made headlines in South Dakota. In the strangest of circumstances, a chartered jet veered off course by more than 1,500 miles and crashed near Aberdeen.
