Pan Am Flight 759
If you are over 35, you might not remember Pan Am Flight 759, or even the date July 9, 1982; but you will recall the horrendous airliner crash in Kenner, caused by a summer storm, which forever scarred a neighborhood. The film Pan Am Flight 759 is the story of the Boeing 727 which fell from the sky and skidded through homes causing a fiery explosion and killing 153 people, including 8 Kenner residents. In addition, four Kenner residents were injured on the ground. July 2012 marks the 30th anniversary of the Pan Am Flight 759 disaster.
