I remember the plane crash well ... I was a little girl swimming at the Island Park pool .. watching this plane overhead with the black smoke hurling out .. It crashed on the mountain .. it shook the pool and tossed kids off the swings in the park. We immediately were told to get out of the pool.
Help took a long time to get there ... there was no such thing as a 4-wheeler back then and there was no road leading to the site.

It is my understanding that one of the Priests in Blossburg arranged for the cross to be placed on top of the mountain. I do not know that as fact.

I remember those who lost their lives every time I see the cross. Am glad to see someone else notices. :)
