It is coming up to nearly the fiftieth anniversary of that day when so many of your had your lives changed forever. 50 years ago ordinary folks boarded Flight 11; a flight that would change so many lives forever after.
It took 48 years for a memorial and around 46 for someone to actually bring what happened back to the fore.
I started this blog never having even dreamed of what this would bring about. It has been an utter privilege to have you tell your stories to me and for you to open up to a complete stranger on the other side of the world.
Flight 11 has been history, intrigue, disaster, loss, grief, friends and most importantly, family.
None of the people who have contacted me deserved to lose their loved ones just as much as those aboard did not deserve to die that evening. However the most important thing now is that there is finally the memorial put in place and that this 50th anniversary will firmly cement what happened in Unionville for generations to come.
