crash memorial

Posted by wlpo on October 16, 2011

The unveiling of a memorial to victims of the American Airlines Flight 191 crash drew more than 1,000 people. The May 1979 crash killed all 271 people on board and two on the ground. The memorial in Lake Park in Des Plaines isn’t far from where the aircraft went down shortly after taking off from O’Hare International Airport.
