‘Everyone who died was a hero’: 40 years after American Airlines Flight 191 crashed near O’Hare, families reflect on those lost

Written by on May 22, 2019

The memorial to America’s deadliest airline accident can be found at a busy street corner in Des Plaines, just down the road from where American Airlines Flight 191 plunged to earth moments after takeoff from O’Hare International Airport on May 25, 1979. It’s a subtle tribute – a small bronze plaque and a knee-high garden wall whose bricks hold the names of the 273 people who died. Chicago Tribune
