Remembering Our Loved Ones . . . 55 Years Ago This Day

February 12, 2018 marks the 55th anniversary of the loss of Flight 705. That day our lives were forever changed. Today we remember family members, friends, and the crew of Flight 705 with love and gratitude for the time we had with them. Here’s to our collective memories that still capture the essence of who these individuals were and what they meant to us. It is my hope that in the coming years a permanent memorial may be erected to them at Everglades National Park.
