One thought on “Episode 26: Aeromexico Flight 498

    Something you might look into, and maybe not quite as emotionally taxing as most episodes, is the St. Louis military records Center fire. No one died, but a lot of history was lost there. It was amazing how quickly so much went up in flames, and how much has still never been recovered.
    Also think the wreck of the Sunset Limited train was an interesting disaster.
