I can remember seeing news footage of flight 191 upsidedown, it was a memory i have never forgotten. I was only 12 years old at the time, but i knew this was a horriable accident. I did not know at the time it was the worst aviation disaster until just now. I have often thougth of the image in my mind, but as i got older was not sure if my memory was real, only because i had heard nothing of it since. I feel for the families because this was truly something that could has been prevented. and the accident sould be talked about exactly for that reason to prevent anything like that from happening again.

I was living in the mobile home park (Touhy Mobil Home Park) next to the crash site at the time of the crash. One of the two people on the ground that was killed lived two doors down from one of my best friends. I told my wife just six months before, that one day a plane would crash nearby, since it had never happened before. I worked 1/2 mile west of the airport and the smoke cloud went right over my place of work dropping piecs of fuselge mesh into the street. One never forgets such experiences! My prayers are with the families who were hurt by this tragedy.
