  • Description

    A Pan-American Beoing 707 jet airliner with 145 people aboard crash landed in dense fog at Kennedy Airport on Tuesday night and skidded off the end of the runway. No one aboard was killed or seriously hurt.

    The huge airliner, flying from San Juan, Puerto Rico, made an instrument approach on the "foul weather" runway. However it overshot and hurtled into a 200 foot (60 metres) wide water-filled ditch.

    Stewardesses and crew calmed the shocked passengers and helped them from the plane through escape hatches. Police reported later that 35 passengers were taken to hospital. Some were reported to have broken bones, but most of them appeared to have suffered cuts and bruises. Five others were treated at the airport for minor injuries.
