All 269 passengers (including a U.S. Representative from Georgia) and crew were killed.

1998 - He was 84 years old when 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.
