The first ever bombing of a commercial airliner happened over Longmont, CO in 1955. The case was tragic and investigators paved the way for investigatory methods used to analyze plane crashes. They thought it was a malfunction, or possibly sabotage by a disgruntled union worker. The truth behind the bombing was far stranger than anyone could have imagined, and at the heart of it was the tumultuous relationship of a mother and son.
