Exclusive for Podcrashers:

May 2, 1970 should have been a beautiful day for flying as ALM Flight 980 made its way from New York to St. Maarten, but it wasn't long before bad weather entered the picture and cast doubt on whether a smooth landing was in store for the crew and passengers. In this month's Patreon-exclusive episode of Take to the Sky: the Air Disaster Podcast, Stephanie shares the story of how one flight crew realized that their landing might not just be bumpy-- it might not happen at all.
