A new permanent exhibit and garden that pays tribute to the crew and passengers as well as Siouxland’s response of the 1989 crash of United Airlines Flight 232 was dedicated Friday at the Mid America Air Museum.
Air Museum Director Larry Finley says he receives weekly questions from visitors about Flight 232 and how local emergency responders helped save 184 lives.
OC….EDUCATIONAL CENTER HERE. :12
Pam Mickelsen heads the 232 anniversary committee, and says the new outdoor garden will be a place of private reflection at the site where the airliner crashed:
OC…..OUT ACROSS RUNWAY 22. ;15
Mark Monson, Chairman of Missouri River Historical Development, presented a $10,000 grant to the air museum for the 232 project.
OC…AFFECTED EVERYBODY. :06
The anniversary events are set for next weekend, July 18, 19, and 20.
