Plane crash
kills 149 in
New Orleans

KENNER, La. (AP) - A Pan
American World Airways jetliner
bulldozed into suburban homes just
minutes after taking off from New
Orleans 'International Airport in a
thunderstorm yesterday, killing all 143
people aboard and at least six on the
ground, officials said.
The three-engine Boeing 727 plowed
through two blocks of houses, and ad-
ditional fatalities were possible. Eight
people n the ground were injured, two
critically, a hospital reported.
A witness said it appeared the plane
was hit by lightning.
George Burlage, a spokesman for the
Federal Aviation Administration's
Southwestern regional headquarters in
Fort Worth, Texas, said there were no
survivors aboard Pan Am Flight 759
from New Orleans to Las Vegas.
Pan Am spokesman Merle Richman
reported 136 passengers and a crew of
seven aboard the plane.
The number killed made the crash
the second-worst in U.S. history in-

worst American air disaster overall.
At least six people died in houses
struck by the plane, said Dr. George
Bodron of the Jefferson Parish
coroner's office. He said the body count
was hampered by the severity of the
crash and the difficulty of telling where
the dead had been aboard the plane
or in houses.
"They're still picking up pieces and
parts of bodies - legs, feet, torsos
without limbs," Bodron said.
Larry Winn was in his backyard with his
four children when he looked up into the
rain and saw the Airways jetliner clip
some trees.
"It looked like he was going to land
and then it sounded like he was trying to
get altitude," said Winn.
Flight 759 from New Orleans to Las
Vegas never gained altitude. It
barreled and bounced into at least eight
homes. Its fuselage broke into metal
missiles that were flung into other
homes and onto lawns like a washing
