1965 : A Pakistan plane crashed in Cairo


A Boeing 707 from Pakistan crashed during a night landing at Cairo airport killing 124 people.

1969 : End of the battle for Hamburger Hill


On May 20, 1969, after 10 days of attacks, Hill 937 is taken to the North Vietnamese by American forces and South Vietnamese. In the U.S. forces alone, 100 soldiers were killed and 400 injured, (70% of the soldiers). Hill 937 was renamed Hamburger Hill. This attack was one example of the absurdity of some U.S. Army operations in Vietnam. On May 28, the hill was abandoned and taken back immediately by the North Vietnamese. This event caused a huge outrage in the U.S. about the unnecessary loss of lives.
