The "official" blog-site regarding the tragic dynamiting and destruction of a Boeing 707 jetliner operating as Continental Airlines Flight 11 in 1962. The destruction of the aeroplane, en route from Chicago to Los Angeles via Kansas City, resulted in the death of all 45 passengers and crew. Finally, after 48 years a memorial was established thanks to the help of this blog, a local historian in Unionville and the assistance of many individuals.

A flight attendant who was on N70775 just before it took off as Flight 11
A former Continental Airlines stewardess who's husband was Captain Gray's cousin has emailed me with some interesting news. She worked on the ill fated aircraft N70775 on the afternoon of the crash. After flying in from Los Angeles on it her crew swapped over to another aircraft and Captain Gray and his crew took command of N70775. The lady who has emailed me, Sandy Glau, said hello to Captain Gray before she boarded the other aircraft.
Upon returning to LAX that evening she learned that flight 11 was missing.
A touching story. Thank you to Sandy for sharing that with me.
