Flight 261 January 31, 2000 RIP 88 people on board

The Air Alaska flight 261 went down on January 31, 2000 off the coast of Los Angeles, killing 88 people on board.

There is a memorial to this accident in Pierce Brothers Memorial Park in Westlake Village, CA, just a couple of doors down from Karen Carpenter's mausoleum.

The anniversary of this event was acknowledged by flowers from the airline itself.

These videos are simulations of that horrifying event.
