On April 28, 1988, flight 243 of Aloha Airlines from Hilo to Honolulu would become one of the most famous accidents in the history of aviation.

Despite these conditions the pilot managed to land the aircraft at a nearby airport with only one victim, a flight attendant who was launched out of the plane.
