I remember it well.

It got a lot of media coverage in the U.K. — 27 of those killed having been British.

I was, even more so that I am now, an ‘airplane junkie’ — who was fascinated by the dynamics of aviation accidents. I was also, in those days, a very frequent flyer — especially in 747s, having flown on one for the first time in 1970.

This was a horrendous accident. Unlikely we will ever see anything like it again. Technology really has come a long way in those 40 years.
