It was really a shock to hear she was among the 88 who perished on Alaska Flight 261.
As I'm sure could be said for everyone on board
These accidents are so tragic, and I remember that this one was no exception! I was living in Southeast Alaska at the time and remember hearing about it because local families were affected.
We also talked about this accident in class recently... it was mentioned that the pilots did a great job trying to control the airplane and troubleshoot the problem until the last seconds of flight.
