What a Miracle That Yesterday’s Plane Crash at the San Francisco Airport Wasn’t Worse. Reminds Us of This KGO-TV Video Report of a Jetliner, in 1968, That Missed the San Francisco Runway Entirely and Landed in the Bay — and, Remarkably, No One Was Hurt

Study this picture carefully. It’s a commercial jetliner that, by mistake, missed the runway at San Francisco Airport on Nov. 22, 1968, and instead landed in the San Francisco Bay. There were over 100 people onboard, and no one was hurt:
