28 years ago today (1982) an Air Florida Boeing 737 crashed into a river in a severe snowstorm. Only 5 survived the accident.

It's much warmer in DC today. RIP to all victims of Air Florida #90.

Where's the passion gone out of the airline industry? The smell of jetfuel and the romance of taking a flight....

I saw that crash on the news -82 , later on Discovery Channel.

Really horrible to watch that f/a blinded by jetfuel trying to swim to the shore.

Upset to see the fire rescue standing on the side of Potomac doing nothing

I was screaming at the TV - Do something, bastards!!!

Very upsetting imo, the true heroes was the chopper crew.

RIP all those who didn´t make it # 90
