20 Killed in Chalk’s Ocean Airways Crash

Uncategorized December 20 2005 0 Comments

All twenty passengers aboard a Chalks Ocean Airways flight from Miami to Bimini, Bahamas, were killed yesterday when their 1947 vintage seaplane crashed outside of the port of Miami.  Despite that you may never have heard of Chalk’s, it is one of the world’s oldest surviving airlines, with flights dating back to 1919.  The airline flies seaplanes that takeoff and land in water, something I got to experience on a Chalk’s flight about 20 years ago.  This accident marks the first passenger fatalities for Chalk’s in the company’s 86 years.
