American Airlines flight 383, tail
#N1996, was making an approach
in rain when it crashed into this
hillside on November 8, 1965 at
7:01 p.m. The 3-engine Boeing 727
Astrojet was en route from New York
to Cincinnati. 58 people perished
four of whom were Kentuckians, one crew member and three
passengers survivedThis was the second in a series of
four 727 crashes within 7 months
The Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB)
ruled pilot error as the cause. As
a resuit, all airlines modified their
training manuals, and pilots were
re oriented to the characteristics
of this safe aircraft. A new and
safer 7800-foot east west runway
was completed in April 1967.
