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.
