A Flying Tiger turboprop flying east missed a runway near Burbank, California on the night of December 15, 1962. The aircraft was carrying four crew members, one passenger and toys it had obtained on a trip to Boston. Visibility was severely impeded by fog. Crashing into a neighborhood of residences and industrial buildings, fires broke out when the aircraft exploded and spilled its fuel haphazardly. Five people were killed on the ground but there were also a number of miraculous escapes and rescues.
