On 8/24/95 a Tristar 1 of Delta (N781DL) suffered explosive decompression near
Los Angeles. No passengers were killed. Yet it was no small incident, the hull
was damaged beyond repair.
Were there serious injuries ? How high was the aircraft at the time of the
mishap? What was the cause of the failure?
