14 Terrible Things That Have Happened on Friday the 13th
A flight crashed in Russia in 1972.
At the time, the tragedy of Aeroflot 217 was the worst plane crash in Russian history. All 174 people on board the flight (including the ten crew members) died when the plane crashed while trying to land due to bad weather on Oct. 13.
It’s never been confirmed what the cause of the crash was – some speculate it was a lightning strike. The plane ended up just three miles away from the runway.
