15 years ago today ... I was a freshman in college. I had just started my classes when this happened.


USAir Flight 427 was a scheduled flight from Chicago's O'Hare International Airport to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, with a final destination of West Palm Beach, Florida. The flight crashed on September 8, 1994, killing everyone on board.

Sorry, my mistake.

It was September 8, 1994 (yesterday was 15th anniversary of accident).

I remember this like it was yesterday. My heart goes out to those who were affected by this. It's unfortunate, but their sacrafice has made air travel much safer. It's a bloody shame it had to be that way though. God Bless and RIP.
