Twenty years ago on July 19th, United Flight 232 crashed at the Sioux Gateway Airport in Sioux City, Iowa. The flight was in route from Denver to Chicago when all three of the aircraft’s hydraulic systems were destroyed due to uncontained engine failure.
Throughout this week the Chamber blog will remember the crew, passengers, and community response to this tragedy that occurred 20 years ago. You’re invited to share your own memories. Directly comment on any post, or send your story to firstname.lastname@example.org
A brief memorial will be held at the riverfront this Sunday, July 19th, at 4 p.m. The Chaplain Greg Clapper will preside. For more information contact the Siouxland Chamber 712-255-7903
