    He was flying from Japan to Kansas City that day. His (military) family had been living in Japan for a few years and he was returning stateside to enroll in college.

    He said during his stopover in San Francisco, his next flight was delayed.  Someone had called in a bomb scare to LAX and the planes and terminal at SF had to be searched with bomb sniffing dogs.  A tv crew filmed him while he was trying to open a locker at the airport with the dogs sniffing around. Poor kid.

    He got into Kansas City that night, around the time Nixon's plane was passing over.  Nixon's resignation became official over Kansas, when Agnew took the oath of office.
