    Background: Eighty-four people died in air crashes in the United States over the weekend. Fifty were victims of a mid-air collision between a U.S. Navy Phantom and a DC-9 jet airliner over California's San Gabriel Mountains on Sunday (June 6). On the East Coast, 28 people died on Monday (June 7) when a Convair jetliner crashed into three cottages while making a landing approach in fog at New Haven, connecticut. Six light aircraft pilots died in air races and acrobatic displays on Saturday and Sunday (June 5-6). This film shows the horror of the two major airliner disasters.
