May they rest in peace. A few of the passengers were traveling to meet with me and others in Frankfurt.
Early in the morning in Europe we received the dreadful news.
A painful memory of lives lost because of bureaucratic incompetence.

A real tragedy indeed. It's hard to believe it's been so long - this was the first aviation disaster for which I can vividly remember the immediate aftermath and media coverage. My thoughts continue to be with all those involved.

You nailed it exactly on the head with that description.

I was down the road at a halloween party. it was entirely crazy watching all the emergency crews come flying by.  

This came right after USAir 427 in Pittsburgh - made me not want to fly for a while.



Eternal darkness we all should dread. It's hard to party when you're dead.

I saw the crew board that flight in ORD earlier that day, and I knew Orlando,Jeff and Sandy very well, good people all, talked to Jeff a few days before the crash. The aftermath of this crash is a whole other story, anyone who worked at any AA Eagle affiliate was affected by the events of that winter.

Thank You for this thread.   

Watched the Airline Investigation (Nat. Geographic) on You Tube last night. Very sad indeed. Its a tragedy that the manufactorer goes after the pilots who can't speak for themselves. They fought like gangbusters to the end.

I didn't realize on an ATR that there was a snack/beverage service for such a short flight. At least as shown in this dramatization.



I'm Zippyjet & I approve of this message!

I cannot claim any connections to this accident but like so many others I am touched by those that can and remember.

Not trying to cause any painful memories, but for those who are unfamiliar with the accident (as was I) may want to watch the Air Investigations episode on it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7_v7YXN6GGQ

The crash happened on a farm right next to the one i was at on halloween. Obviously we couldn't just get by the crash site for obvious reasons but that didn't stop us the days following from getting on the roof of our friends and looking at the area through a telescope. I'll never forget looking through the telescope and seeing literally a sea of say 2,000 orange flags. At first we thought that was pieces of the plane ... then right when we were looking through them we caught a newspaper article saying it was mark to where body parts where found. Uuuuggggghhhh.......

Please message or email me if you would like. Would like to get in touch and hear more about your memories. There is a Eagle pilot that I am looking to network with.

Thank you! What I have done, in their memory, is to become an aviation safety advocate. I am working with many sources as we speak.
