Remembering game-changing Grand Canyon plane crash

A National Historical Landmark plate overlooks the east end of the Grand Canyon in Arizona. Two commercial airplanes, United Flight 718 and TWA Flight 2, collided on June 30, 1956, over this spot, killing all 128 people aboard in one of the deadliest aviation disasters in the U.S. On Tuesday, July 8, 2014, the Grand Canyon National Park will mark the designation of the crash site as a National Historic Landmark.
