Plane Crash on Burnside

1978 Plane Crash Location

United Airlines Flight 173 from New York City to Portland International Airport crashed on December 28, 1978. The plane ran out of fuel while troubleshooting a landing gear problem. The crash occurred in a suburban Portland neighborhood near NE 157th Avenue and East Burnside Street.

Amazingly, 175 of the 185 on board survived and the two houses the crashed plane ran into were unoccupied.
