Who has heard of the ASA EMB-120 Crash. It happened August 1995. The #1 Engine Failed and threw 3 of 4 propeller blades into the wing, some passengers escaped and some died. It was on its way to GPT where I live, well, I live in Ocean Springs 15 minutes away from GPT. :-) luckily not everone died

Yes indeed. The #1 engine shredded itself, sending three of four prop blades into the cabin. The Captain did a truly heroic job trying to bring the bird down safely, and almost succeeded. The plane clipped some trees as he was attempting to land in a field and broke in half.
Thanks to the Captain's efforts, 21 people survived. Only 8 of the 29 onboard perished, unfortunately the Captain was one of them.
Good pic of the crash in the photo galleries at
