Washington’s National Law Enforcement Museum remembered the 35th anniversary of the 1984 crash of an Air Florida jet into the 14th bridge with a discussion Tuesday night that featured the pilot of the helicopter that plucked several survivors out of the icy Potomac, the (former) local TV photographer who captured the rescues on video and former Washington Police Department detective. 74 people on board the plane were killed along with four motorists.

It’s a seminal moment in Washington D.C. history: the crash and subsequent rescue of passengers aboard doomed Air Florida Flight 90. “I’d never seen anything like it,” Don Usher said. Usher was the U.S. Park Police pilot who swooped in under horrendous conditions to pluck a number of surviving passengers to safety.

“That’s not common to have them occur in the same location like that especially during separate types of activity,” Breul explained.
