Families who lost loved ones in the crash of a Trans-Canada Air Lines flight 50 years ago visited the site of the tragedy today.
It’s been described as one of Canada’s worst air disasters – killing 118 people in all.
On November 29th, 1963, Flight 831 caught fire and then exploded shortly after takeoff from Montreal’s Dorval Airport.
The plane crashed in a field in the community of Ste-Therese-de-Blainville.
About 350 relatives of the victims came together on Friday to mark the 50th anniversary with a memorial service.
Today, they visited a local museum where there’s an exhibit on the crash and a memorial plaque marking near the site of the accident.
A Transport Canada investigation couldn’t determine an exact cause because the DC-8 jet had disintegrated.Report Typo/Error
