Description:
An artist's conception of the December 4, 1965 mid-air collision of a TWA Boeing 707 and an Eastern Airlines Lockheed Super Constellation over Carmel, New York. My grandfather was a passenger aboard the 707 which lost a wingtip but fortunately made a safe landing.

Thought it was the 1956 Grand Canyon collision at first, that one involved a Constellation as well, but it was struck by a DC-7 and both planes crashed shortly thereafter with no survivors.

#2, Probably a combination of a general lack of fatalities, a lack of any long-term changes in the operation of the commercial air industry as a result , and the fact that, even as recently as 65' There weren't flight data recorders on most airplanes, so a lot of the investigation work was blind guessing at what happened and would be impossible to recreate for dramatic purposes with any certainty, the first prototype FDR's weren't even INVENTED until 1958.

#3, They did the Manchester United plane crash of 1958, and it was a very interesting episode... granted, it was VERY open ended, discussing how the differing viewpoints have never reconciled...

#4, It also helped that one of the flight crew survived the accident.

In terms of crashes never talked about, I'm more surprised this one hasn't been featured, considering it caused 177 fatalities.
