47 Years Ago Today ...... Marshall Team Plane Crashes

Recommended Posts



On this date in 1970, the team plane for the Marshall University Football team crashed, killing all on board. All but 3 members of the team (who for various reasons, did not make the trip) perished in the crash. 

In addition to the 37 players who died on that plane, 8 coaches (including the school's athletic director), 25 boosters, and 5 crew members were all killed.
