Revisiting Richmond’s Worst Airplane Disaster: Flight 201/8 - November 8, 1961.

The June 30, 2017 edition of the Richmond Times-Dispatch announced that "A plane crash in Virginia that killed 74 Army recruits in 1961 is among several topics that will be highlighted on new highway markers across the state.  A marker near Richmond International Airport in Henrico County will tell the story of the Imperial Airlines Flight 201/8 crash, which killed 74 Army recruits and three of five crew members on Nov. 8, 1961. An exact spot for the marker has not yet been decided."

Selden told the story of that crash in a November 2013 blog post on this site. Below is a link to the blog post.
