National Airlines Flight 967Monday November 16, 1959
The aircraft crashed into the Gulf of Mexico at 29 degrees 13 minutes N, 88 degrees 40 minutes W or about 108 miles east-southeast of New Orleans, while on a flight from Tampa to New Orleans. Sabotage (explosion of a dynamite bomb aboard) was strongly suspected but could never be proven due to lack of physical evidence. There is a possibility that there is a connection between this crash and the National Airlines crash of January 6, 1960. No one was charged in either case.
