80 Years Later, Plane Crash Remains A Mystery

In October of 1933, a United Airlines flight with seven people aboard was blown up with a bomb over Chesterton, Indiana. A young Federal Agent named Melvin Purvis headed up an exhaustive investigation, involving hundreds of leads. But eighty years later, the crash remains a mystery, the first case of aviation terrorism in America. Phil Rogers reports in the NBC 5 Investigates segment.

Hey, kids! United Airlines says children flying alone need to go nonstop or stay home.

United says it's no longer allowing children ages 5 to 11 to fly without an adult on flights that include connections. It also says its optional service for unaccompanied minors ages 12-17 will only be offered on nonstop flights.

It made the changes quietly two weeks ago. United charges $150 extra, each way, for children flying alone.

United's new policy for young children is similar to policies at US Airways and Southwest. Delta Air Lines and American will still help young children who are flying alone get to connecting flights.
