For interested readers of this website, my name is Duane Crawford from Unionville, Missouri, the place where Continental Airlines Flight 11 was sabotaged and destroyed on May 22, 1962. All 37 passengers and 8 crew members were killed in the crash.
At 11:00 a.m., on May 26, 2012, a 50th Anniversary Remembrance Service will be held in Unionville to honor the innocent victims of the terrible tragedy. A good number of the families plan to attend, but the highlight of the event is Andrew Russell's presence here in Unionville. He will be the main speaker.
Andrew, a young New Zealand college student, inspired our local citizens to build and dedicate a beautiful Flight 11 Memorial in 2010. His round trip fare and accommodations are being paid for by the generous donations of families and local citizens.
Much has been written about Flight 11 and the families. I can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org. The service is open to the public.
