The Nation

March 20, 1986

More than two dozen relatives of soldiers killed when a military-chartered transport plane crashed in Newfoundland last December told federal officials in Washington that they are angry and distraught at the way the Pentagon handled the accident. The stormy, 90-minute session occurred on the first day of a three-day trip the families made to the nation's capital to find out more about the Dec. 12 crash, which killed 248 servicemen in Gander, Newfoundland. The troops were en route home for Christmas from the Sinai.
