A plane blown from the sky. 52 victims. Four suspects. No charges.

Exploding mid-air on July 8, 1965, Canadian Pacific Flight 21 plummeted into the woods in the B.C. Interior, killing all aboard. While police determined a bomb brought down the passenger plane — and four suspects were named — no charges were ever laid. In this CBC Podcasts co-production with The National, we uncover one of the largest unsolved murders on Canadian soil.
