Another Boeing/FAA "whoops" from 1969

My old man just sent me this one — he was a young flight instructor (21 years old) in New Jersey when he saw a fireball on the ground ahead and requested to be redirected from Atlantic City to Cape May. His student was wearing an IFR hood and wasn’t able to see out of their plane, which is probably good.

Turns out it was this exact TWA training flight.
