On January 13, 1982, an Air Florida Boeing 737 crashes into the 14th Street Bridge across the Potomac River just 2 miles from the White House. All but six of the 79 people aboard are killed, and 4 motorists crossing the bridge die as well. Takeoff of the flight for Ft. Lauderdale, FL had been delayed on the runway threshold nearly an hour by winter weather, and not wanting to cause further delays, the pilot and co-pilot agreed not to return to the terminal for de-icing. The plane crashed less than a mile after leaving the runway. On January 13, 1128, Pope Honorius II grants papal sanction to the Knights Templar, declaring it to be an Army of God. Organized by nine noblemen of France 10 years earlier, the Knights Templar had taken upon themselves the task of protecting Christians travelling in pilgrimage to the Holy Land. The society would grow rapidly in size, power and wealth, so much so that French King Phillip VI and Pope Clement V combined in jealousy to dissolve them over a five-year period beginning in 1307. Legends that the Knights Templar discovered and hid away numerous holy relics, including the Ark of the Covenant and the Holy Grail, continue to this day. On January 13, 1929, Wyatt Earp dies peacefully in Los Angeles, at the age of 80. The legendary Wild West lawman and hero of the Gunfight at the OK Corral had become a bit of a drifter after the 1881 murder of his brother Morgan. Still a deputized marshal at the time of Morgan's death, Wyatt sought vengeance rather than justice and was forced to flee Arizona after one of Morgan's suspected murderers turned up dead. In his later years, Wyatt ran a saloon in San Francisco, raised racehorses in San Diego, and took part in two Northwest gold rushes before settling in LA and finding work as a consultant on western movies in the growing Hollywood film industry. He also tried unsuccessfully to find a publisher interested in his colorful life, and it would not be until a biography was written and published shortly after his death that Earp achieved true nationwide fame.
