i remember that dreary day. i was home from school that day because i wasnt feeling well. like most others i first became aware something was wrong because of the sound of continual siren activity from the responding emergency vehicles. at the time i lived 2 miles south of the brooklyn crash site.

after the in air collision the twa constellation which had the more severe damage i have to believe by chance crashed and burned in nearby miller field. miller field was a government air field only 2 miles south of the collision. but the united dc8 stayed in the air before going down in park slope. they either werent either aware of the nearby air field or didnt have the mechanical ability to guide it there.i think i read neither plane had any contact with any airport after the collision.

3 days later there was a large fire that killed and injured many on the aircraft carrier uss constellation in the brooklyn navy yard . 3 days apart in brooklyn ny the word constellation was associated with death and destruction.
