Logan’s seaside location drives safety plans

Calif. crash evokes memories of deadly ’73 accident in Boston

The worst plane crash in Boston’s history occurred on July 31, 1973, when a Delta Airlines DC-9 exploded into flames after hitting a seawall while landing at Logan Airport. All 89 people aboard Flight 723 died, including the lone survivor who died months later in the hospital. Fog was a major factor in the disaster. The grim photos and reports depict a horrific scene that has haunted the lives of many. - Leanne Burden Seidel and Lisa Tuite
