Wasn't there a bargain basement, hi value/low-price/low-rent airline a while back....ValueJet, I think......that crashed into the Florida everglades

Oxygen cannisters were on board in the luggage compartment. They are hazardous material, and it was a violation of regulations for them to be on the plane. It will never be known if they weren't properly processed because they were believed to be empty or if they were accidently placed on board because the boxes were marked company owned material (no indication of being hazardous material).
