Upon leaving, a helicopter collided with a transport plane and the men were killed.

In 1998, when she was 69 years old, on December 19th, the House of Representatives initiated impeachment charges against U.S. President Bill Clinton. He was subsequently acquitted of these charges by the Senate on February 12th.
