Of note, 44 years ago today I was a young 20-year-old volunteer firefighter when American Airlines Flight 191 crashed on departure from O’Hare IAP. I spent several hours working at the site.

In the 44 years since that day, I’ve been to numerous serious aircraft accidents/crashes, but nothing like what happened on the 25th of May, 1979, sights and smells that will never be forgotten….

Here are the stories for today…

Be safe out there!
