On this Day in Weather History...
In 1985, a Delta Airlines Tri Star, while on final approach into Dallas Fort Worth Airport, crashed when it encountered a severe thunderstorm induced micro burst. The crash killed 128 passengers and 8 crew members. The tragedy played a vital role in the decision to install wind shear detectors at many airports across the country. In 1954, reportedly severe thunderstorms pummeled parts of North Central Kansas with golfball sized hail for around 30 minutes. One hail drift reportedly measured 200 feet long, 70 feet wide, and 3 feet deep. No further details were provided.
