American Airlines Flight 1 was a domestic, scheduled passenger flight from John F. Kennedy International Airport to Los Angeles International Airport. On March 1, 1962, the plane flying the route crashed shortly after take-off, killing all 87 passengers and eight crew members aboard. A Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) investigation determined that a manufacturing defect in the automatic pilot system led to an uncommanded rudder control system input, causing the accident.
