Unionville, Mo., recalls first bombing of commercial jet in the U.S.

Aviation buffs know Flight 11 as the country’s first bombing of a commercial jet airliner, an act of sabotage by a passenger that killed all 45 people on board. Yet the crash of the plane, which departed Chicago en route to Los Angeles with a Kansas City stop, was largely forgotten as time passed. Now families who carried memories of the crash and residents who remembered that awful night are talking about it again.
