Victim's Parent Died In Earlier 'Worst Ever' Crash
May 29, 1979
Leonard Stogel, a Malibu rock music promoter who managed such groups as the Cowsills and Sam the Sham, was among the 273 passengers killed in Friday’s crash of a Los Angeles-bound American Airlines DC-10 as it took off from Chicago.
His parents met a similar death 17 years ago when an American Airlines plane went down on a flight from New York to Los Angeles, killing all 95 aboard. Both crashes were the worst ever in U.S. history at the time they occurred.
