1933: A United Airlines Boeing 247 crashes near Chesterton, Ind., after an explosive device detonates on board in the first proven case of sabotage in the history of commercial aviation. The transcontinental flight, carrying three crew members and four passengers, had originated in Newark, N.J., with its final destination in Oakland, Calif. Despite the efforts of the investigators, no suspect has ever been identified or charged in this incident, and it remains unsolved.
