The burned out wreckage of a U.S. aircraft lies in the desert some 300 miles south of Tehran after the abortive commando-style raid into Iran, April 1980, aimed at freeing the American hostages being held in Tehran.  The rescue mission fell apart when several helicopters failed and a helicopter and C141 transport plane collided.  At least 8 U.S. servicemen died in the mission.  (AP Photo)
