Extra, extra, read all about it. 

In 1962 – Continental Airlines flight 11, service from Chicago to Kansas City, explodes over southern Iowa, killing all 45 on board. The explosion was caused by one Thomas Doty, who exploded dynamite in an aft lavatory so his family could collect insurance benefits. Doty was about to appear in court on an armed robbery charge and had purchased both flight insurance and the dynamite before the flight. The family’s insurance claim was denied after Doty’s death was ruled a suicide. 

In 1993 – Riddick Bowe defends his WBC heavyweight title with a second-round knockout over Jesse Ferguson at RFK Stadium in Washington DC. It was the second and final defense for Bowe, who would lose the title to Evander Holyfield in November and the bout remains Ferguson’s only world championship fight. Bowe’s IBF heavyweight title was not at stake because the IBF did not recognize Ferguson as a ranked contender. 

In 1982 – Asia is at #1 on the Billboard 200 album chart for the second of nine non-consecutive weeks with Asia. The album also went to #1 in Canada, peaked at #11 in Great Britain, and was Billboard’s #1 album of the year. It was the first of nine chart albums for the group and remains their only #1 and produced two chart singles, including the Top 10 hit Heat of the Moment.
