Details: On December 12, 1985, two-hundred and forty eight 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. Although ice on the wings was blamed for the crash, relatives of the passengers believe the U.S. Government with the complicity of Canadian officials have been covering up the real cause of the crash. Several people believe that an incendiary device caused an explosion leading to the crash.
