Flight 242 service at New Hope Baptist Church - The Dallas New Era

Tuesday, April 18, 2017

Airways Flight 242 executed a forced landing on what is now Ga. 381 on April 4, 1977, after suffering hail damage and losing thrust on both its engines in a severe thunderstorm during a flight from Huntsville, Alabama to Atlanta.Last weekend’s event was scheduled in coordination with the Paulding County Library System’s hosting of the Flight 242 Traveling Display of mounted news articles and photos of the crash. The display can be viewed from March 27 through April 8 at the Maud P. Ragsdale Public Library at 1815 Hiram-Douglasville Highway.The passing of four decades since the crash in 1977 has done little to dull the memory of that day for many friends, families of victims, and survivors. New Hope Memorial Flight 242, Inc. is actively working toward raising funds for the construction of a permanent monument to preserve the memory of those who lost their lives and to honor the survivors and first responders. And Paulding County has dedicated a site for the monument at the edge of New Hope Cemetery, a short distance from the crash site.New Hope Memorial’s President Cherry Waddell said the price tag of a permanent memorial near the site of the crash has risen to about $300,000 and thus far about $22,000 has been raised. She said it may take about four to five years to reach their goal.As with many such accidents, several factors conspired to bring down the Southern Airways DC-9 on that April day in 1977. Captain Bill McKenzie and co-pilot Lyman Keele were advised of thunderstorms and possible tornadoes along their general route prior to their departure from Huntsville, but not subsequently updated of the fact tha...

Part of my passion is to teach people what I know and to make death a part of life."Champion said the death cafe will be only the second gathering of its kind in Huntsville. In the meantime, we caught up with Champion to talk about why residents should attend the event.You've recently started building a new career to bring more awareness to the death and burial process, which many Americans have lost touch with as funeral homes have assumed care for the dead.
