Pat was a flight attendant who died in the crash of Eastern Airlines Flight 401 into the Everglades. The aircraft was forced to break off its approach to Miami International Airport after the nose-gear light failed to illuminate, indicating that the gear was properly lowered. While in a holding pattern at 2,000 feet over the Everglades National Park, the Captain bumped his control column, leading to the disconnection of the autopilot. With the attention of all three crewmembers focused on the landing gear and the extinguished light, the aircraft descended unnoticed into the ground.
