I Need Help Finding 1970s ESF/ Kesf Accident Info

Hi! I don't know if there is any way to locate this info or not, but here is what I am looking for:

Back in the 1970's-mid 1980's there was an accident at Esler Regional Airport (ESF/ KESF) involving a DELTA B727 (or was it DC-9??). They were landing in bad weather (from what I was told), and the A/C touched down around midpoint of the runway (length only about 6000ft). Needless to say, the aircraft did not stop at the end and went off into swampy area off the end of the runway. Luckily, everyone made it without severe injuries.

I am trying to find any info about this that I can find (just to satisfy my curiosity!!). I have went to www.ntsb.gov but have found nothing.
Can anyone steer me in the right direction or provide some info on this???

The only time you have too much fuel is when you're on fire.

I can't help you with the specific incident, but there has only been one operational incident involving DL 727's. This was DL1141 in 1988 crashing on takeoff in DFW. There was an additional aircraft that caught on fire on the ground in SLC.
As for DC9's there were 3 incidences occurring at CHA, BOS, and DFW.
DL did not have an accident from 1973 until DL191 in 1985.



It's a big building with patients, but that's not important right now.

Actually, I remember in the early 70's Delta landed a DC-9 at Pollock, just north of ESF, however it landed safely and after being emptied out it was flown down to ESF. I don't remember DL using the 727 into ESF at all, just DC-9's.

They did operate the B727s for a little while. I remember watching them take off over my house.

I think your best is to head out to your local library and look in the microfiche files of the newspaper. If you pick the oldest looking librarian, they might even remember the year and month, saving you a lot of looking!
That's of course, if you live in the area of Alexandria.
