A local station in the Kirksville area called KTVO has run an article on their web-site along with a short documentary on November 27th about the crash of CO11. I haven't seen the doco but am told by a local historian that it was excellent. The print-article can be found here:
It just goes to show that with all the recent activity sparked by myself and Mr Duane Crawford,
a local Unionville historian whom I have contacted and am in correspondence with,
that CO11 has been resurrected from the dusty archives of history and is finally
starting to receive the recognition that is due. Hopefully more will follow on this
as the months go by as I think (finally) we have the ball rolling for a memorial.
There is a push at present for one to be erected by the Putnam County
Historical Society. Mr Duane Crawford, local historian, has already donated
money toward this memorial at a recent meeting of the historical society. A
very noble gesture to this not so forgotten (now) tragedy.
