On March 27, 1977, 583 people were killed when a KLM Boeing 747, which was
attempting to take off in heavy fog, crashed into a Pan Am 747 on the
airport runway on the Canary Island of Tenerife, Spain. All the passengers
and crew aboard the KLM aircraft were killed. Only 61 of the 396 passengers
and crew on the Pan Am plane survived.
