    This is one in a series of videos looking back at big stories in Sacramento area history. On Sept. 24, 1972, a restored Korean War-era jet lost control on a runway at Executive Airport in Sacramento during an air show, skidded across Freeport Boulevard and slammed into Farrell's Ice Cream Parlor, which was crowded with 100 people that day. Twenty-two people died in the tragedy, including one family of four and nine members of a second family.
