 civil aviation disasters

The 1980s brought both good and bad to the airline industry. 1984 was the safest year of air travel, with no major crashes in the United States. The following year brought a dramatic turn, over 2,000 people lost their lives. Terrorism also came to the forefront in the 1980s, with two major bombing incidents.
