United Airlines Flight 736 Crash

This area dates back to the days of the San Pedro, Los Angeles and Salt Lake Railroad in the early 1900s. This is the location of an underground command and control bunker that was built in the early 1950s to protect local officials in the event that a nuclear attack would occur.

On April 21, 1958, United Airlines Flight 736 was involved in a mid-air collision when the aircraft was struck by a US Air Force fighter jet. There were no survivors in both aircrafts. 42 passengers and 5 crew members on United Airlines Flight 736 died. The student pilot and the instructor in the fighter jet both died.

The area is now known as Enterprise, Nevada.
