One of the passengers on United Flight 826 was Stephen Baltz, a young boy traveling by himself. As he looked down at the white mantel of snow covering New York City the plane shook with a loud thud as the collision occurred. One of United’s jet engines rammed into TWA at nearly 400 miles per hour, splitting open TWA’s fuselage, and scooping

out of the TWA cabin a woman passenger. Slowly she was fed into the knife-like fan blades at the front of the jet engine.

 

-----------------

It was all over for the passengers and crew of TWA Flight 266. But the horror continued for those on United Flight 826. After ramming TWA, and losing one of its engines, Flight 826 proceeded for eight miles in a northeasterly direction, losing altitude as it descended toward the

heavily congested Brooklyn section of New York City.

 

The only noise on Brooklyn’s Sterling Place was the occasional sloshing sound of a car going through the snow. But this shortly changed. Thousands of people on the ground in New York City watched the DC-8 streaking toward the densely populated Park Slope residential and business

section. Flight 826 swept in low, and just before impact, threatened to crash into St. Augustine parochial school that contained over a thousand

children.
