Permanent memorial planned for fatal Roselawn, Ind. crash
October 31, 2013 (ROSELAWN, Ind.) (WLS) -- On the 19th anniversary of a fatal Indiana plane crash, the families of victims are planning a permanent memorial.
In 1994 an American Eagle flight from Indianapolis to Chicago crashed into a field near Roselawn, Indiana.
The cause was icing on the wings.
All 68 people on board were killed.
The plane was a twin engine turboprop commuter aircraft.
By next year the families hope to have constructed a memorial to their loved ones.
They're raising funds for the cost of construction and maintenance.
