1960s / 1961 US Figure Skating Team
This group photo of the U.S. figure skating team was taken on February 14, 1961 as they prepared to depart from New York City to Brussels--their first leg on a journey to the world championship in Prague. They never made it. After a seemingly routine flight, the airplane experienced unexpected difficulty while in a holding pattern while awaiting permission to land. The aircraft crashed into a farmer's field in the small town of Berg, Belgium. All 72 people aboard the airplane perished--including the 18 people connected to the U.S. figure skating team. Because of the horrible tragedy, the world championships that year were cancelled.
