Los Rodeos Airport, Tenerife, Canary Is, Spain

On March 27, 1977, Los Rodeos was the scene of the worst airplane crash in history. On that Sunday afternoon, just before 2 p.m., two Boeing 747s touched down at Los Rodeos. One was a KLM (Royal Dutch Airlines) flight from Amsterdam. The other a Pan American flight from New York. Both were charter flights.

Twenty-eight years ago, the greatest disaster in airline history killed 538 people
