Is it really the first disaster with multiple deaths? While Apollo 1 was not actually a flight three did die on that day. I would have thought that would be included in the official disaster list for NASA? Chris Day 02:36, 4 December 2008 (UTC)

No, the first US actual in-flight disaster with multiple fatalities. I'm no space expert, so feel free to rewrite this as you see fit. Aleta Curry 01:57, 5 December 2008 (UTC)
