The 1960 New York mid-air collision, also known as the Park Slope Plane Crash, was a strange mid-air collision between two large airliners that occurred over New York City on Friday, 16 December 1960. The collision of United Airlines Flight 826 and Trans World Airlines Flight 266 caused Flight 266 to crash into Staten Island and Flight 826 to crash into Park Slope, Brooklyn, resulting in the death of all 128 people on board the two airliners, along with an additional six people on the ground.
