Famous air crash memorials and monuments
Places that honor those who perished in airplane disasters
Air travel remains the quickest and most efficient method of getting from A to B. Statistically speaking, flying on a commercial airliner is the safest form of transport there is, according to the US National Safety Council. But occasionally, it goes terribly wrong. Airplane crashes happen, and make headline news around the world. In their wake, memorials to the victims are invariably created to honor lives lost. Some are simple plaques, others more elaborate in design. All, however, serve as places where relatives and friends can remember their loved ones.
