On September 25th 1978 a Boeing 727 just minutes before landing crashes in San Diageo, making it the first site of the biggest aviation disaster in the US history. Pacific Southwest Airline Flight 182 was having an early morning flight on the coast of California. It was travelling from Sacramento to San Diageo. Co-pilot Robert Fox, a 9 year old veteran was in charge of the plane alongside Captain James McFeron who was with PSA for 17 years, he was appreciated highly by his colleagues for his flying skills. It was the second flight of the day for both men.
It was 3:30 in the morning when our plane finally landed in Santo Domingo and I had just witnessed the scariest plane flight of my life. Along with the scariest flight in my life it had been the longest day in my life. I had been up for 22 hours straight, waiting and riding on plane flights that constantly got delayed or pushed back along with excruciating long car rides. Our mission team stayed the night at some nice hotel and in the morning we would take off for San Juan De La Maguana where we would stay the rest of the week. That morning we woke up extremely early and trudged into the elevators down to the lobby.

There are heroes among us that we don't see. These people show their bravery in acts of greatness whether they are saving people or other things of significant value to others. It is without a doubt that people like these are remembered for their acts of greatness and abiding service. Ways individuals like these are remembered are through people’s writing, or even monuments celebrating their acts of courage. Some heroes being commemorated through books are often written by people who were saved by that hero; furthermore, the individual saved must feel eternally grateful from the hero’s work.

I wasn 't sure if he was trying to keep me calm or himself. I figured right now wasn 't the best time to ask. The rocking of the floor was giving me a stomach ache. “Jump Abela, I promise you will be ok, just jump don’t worry about me” he breathed, trying to sound assured that we would be ok. I looked down I saw the lifeboat and without looking back I jumped.
