Northeast Airlines Flight 823 Crash

Here is what is left of the crashed and burned Northeast airliner as it looked Feb. 2, 1957, the morning after the plane fell on Rikers Island, killing 20 persons and sending 64 to hospitals. The airliner was bound for Miami from La Guardia Airport with more than 100 person, including crew, aboard, when it crashed in a blinding snowstorm. Buildings in the background are part of the New York City penitentiary from which a number of trusty-prisoners were released to help in the rescue. (AP Photo/Jacob Harris)
