This Day in Failure: December 8

2008: An F/A-18D Hornet (supersonic) jet loses power and crashes in a suburban San Diego neighborhood as it prepares to land at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar. The pilot ejects safely before the crash but three houses and four vehicles are destroyed and four people are killed on the ground.

2003: A wall of Toronto’s Uptown Theater collapses and hits a neighboring school, killing one man and injuring more than a dozen others. The theater was in the process of being demolished at the time of the accident.

1940: The Chicago Bears defeat the Washington Redskins 73-0 to win the NFL Championship, handing the Redskins the most lopsided loss in league history.
