Patrons of the 1956 Grand Canyon Midair Collision is proud to announce their first hosting of a memorial program honoring the victims of this tragic accident. The group's president, Mike Nelson; vice president, Thomas E. Sulpizio; and secretary, Barbara Nelson worked on this for over a year, and have put together what they believe to be a full and interesting day. June 30, 2022 is the 66th anniversary of the tragedy.
The day will commence at the Grand Canyon's Desert View amphitheater, followed in the afternoon at the Pioneer Cemetery for a memorial service to honor those who lost their lives on the United DC-7. At Flagstaff Citizens' Cemetery a memorial service honoring the TWA victims will end the program.
We feel privileged to present this full day event.
