OUR VIDEO IN THIS ALBUM MAY NOT BE SUITABLE FOR ALL OF OUR GUESTS. VIEWER DISCRETION IS ADVISED! SEE VIDEO DESCRIPTION BELOW...

...On Saturday, July 17, 2010, the Flight 383/128 Memorial Group had the honor of meeting Dr. Paul and Dorian Hart-Cochran when they visited us from Hyannis, MA. Dorian's father, Bruce Hart, a Decca Records engineer, passed away when American Airlines flight 383 from New York's LaGuardia Airport slammed into a northern Boone County Kentucky hillside as it approached the Greater Cincinnati Airport. The video is a record of our hike to the crash site provided by Dr. Cochran and edited by Rollie Puterbaugh. Again, we suggest viewer discretion.
