Details: On December 12, 1985, two hundred and fifty-six people died when a plane crashed almost immediately after take-off from Gander International Airfield in Newfoundland. All of the passengers were members of the 101st Airborne Division assigned to a peace-keeping force in the Sinai Peninsula.

Several people believe that an incendiary device caused an explosion leading to the crash.
