The 1968 Stockport air disaster

On 4 June 1967 a Canadair C-4 Argonaut passenger aircraft owned by British Midland Airways crashed near the centre of Stockport. Of the 84 people on board, 72 were killed. 

According to Wikipedia, this was the fourth-worst accident in British aviation history.

This film was made by BBC North the following year. It interviews survivors and witnesses and looks at the subsequent investigation.
