Lake Pontchartrain is a saltwater lake in southeast Louisiana that is approximately 30 miles from end to end. My e-book looks at plane crashes that have occurred in the lake from 1949-2014. The majority of the crashes I have researched are small planes but there are several that I have included of a large size. One of these was an Eastern Air Lines DC-8 and the other was a B-25 Bomber. Only the DC-8 , an Eastern Air Lines flight that carried 58 passengers to their deaths, received wide media coverage. The other crashes received brief mentions in newspaper syndications but not very much.
