We took the weekly trip back in time to 1987 this weekend on Saturday Morning Flashback.

From the fashion horrors of high-waisted acid washed jeans with shoulder-padded jackets to frightening movies like Fatal Attraction. To Black Monday, the day in October when the stock market crashed hard.

To joyous moments: watching non-stop television coverage of 18-month old baby Jessica rescued from a well in Texas; to an 18 year old German pilot landing a small airplane in Moscow's Red Square; to the lasting brilliance of U2's The Joshua Tree.
