1960 New York Air Disaster

The 1960 New York air disaster was a collision on December 16, 1960, between two airliners over Staten Island, New York City, in which one plane crashed into Staten Island and the other into Park Slope, a Brooklyn neighborhood. The crash killed everyone on the two aircraft—84 people aboard Flight 826 and 44 on Flight 266—and six people on the ground. With a death toll of 134, the accident was the deadliest U.S. commercial aviation disaster at the time. The only initial survivor of the tragedy was 11-year-old Stephen Baltz of Wilmette, Illinois, a passenger on the United jet, who was thrown from the plane into a snowbank at impact. He died the next morning.
