Thanks for logging on and telling us an air tragedy near Stephenville 66 years ago today.
Why is this disaster important to you?
Wednesday October 3, 2012 7:57 Steve Bartlett
7:57

It is important because it has been forgotten.
Wednesday October 3, 2012 7:57 Lisa Daly

Can you tell me a little bit about the crash?
Wednesday October 3, 2012 7:58 Steve Bartlett

Lisa Daly: 
We have a rich aviation history here in Newfoundland and Labrador, and so many tragic, but important moments in that history have been lost over the years, and I would like to see them remembered and memorialized.

Moments after takeoff, the aircraft struck the site of a hill, known now as Crash Hill, killing all on board.

Lisa Daly: 
At first a memorial cemetery was set up at the top of the hill, something that can be seen from the air so the families of the deceased could fly overhead.
Wednesday October 3, 2012 8:00 Lisa Daly
8:01
Lisa Daly: 
But that cemetery has fallen in to disrepair, all of the crosses have fallen down.
Wednesday October 3, 2012 8:01 Lisa Daly

There is no maintenance to the site. And although many people in the area known that there is a plane crash on crash hill, they don't know the tragedy of it or the details of the event.

Difficult.
Wednesday October 3, 2012 8:02 Lisa Daly

It is a challenging hike, very steep, and no trail.
Wednesday October 3, 2012 8:02 Lisa Daly

Steve Bartlett: 
Emotionally? Physically?
Wednesday October 3, 2012 8:02 Steve Bartlett
8:03
Lisa Daly: 
Physically, and all of the crash sites I have worked on are emotionally difficult. Any where people died in the accident.
