Ol' Blue Eyes is born, Boys Town is founded, the first motel opens, "The Godfather: Part II" premieres, and the U.S. Supreme Court decides the 2000 presidential election, all on this day.
1985: Arrow Air Flight 1285 crashes after takeoff in Gander, Newfoundland, killing 256, including 236 members of the United States Army's 101st Airborne Division headed home to Fort Campbell, Kentucky, from peacekeeping duty in the Sinai Desert. An investigation by the Canadian Aviation Safety Board pointed to icing on the jet's wings as the most likely cause of the crash. Pictured here is wreckage from the crash being stored in a Gander Airport hangar during the investigation.
