Yesterday, December 16, 2010, was the 50th anniversary of [the midair collision over NYC]. A commemoration was held at Green-Wood Cemetery, near the spot where three caskets of unidentified remains were interred in a grave purchased by United Airlines on January 5, 1961. It was quite an event. Here’s the new monument, placed at Green-Wood, as it is being unveiled by Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz and City Councilman Vincent J. Gentile. Many individuals were on hand who were at the scene of the crash fifty years ago.
