I don’t know how many people remember or were even aware of the 1956 disaster at the Grand Canyon when TWA and a United Airlines flights collided in midair over the Grand Canyon, killing 128 people. June 30 was the anniversary of the flight and there were a number of services remembering and honoring the event. The proposed location for Grand Canyon Escalade was used as the primary recovery spot for retrieving those killed in the collision and the wreckage of the two planes. Most of the wreckage was left at the Confluence site until 1976. Small pieces of the aircraft can still be found. Links to articles about the crash and the recent events are listed below.
