Explosion at Orly: The Disaster That Transformed Atlanta

In 1962, a chartered Air France jet crashed on takeoff from Orly Airport, killing all 132 passengers and crew on board, including 106 Atlantans. Many of the passengers were civic and cultural leaders returning from a museum tour of Europe sponsored by the Atlanta Art Association. This book chronicles the tragic loss and its impact on Atlanta’s arts and culture scene.
