We Will Never Forget

Marshall University Football Team Crash
November 14, 1970

At 7:36pm, Southern Airway Flight 932, a chartered DC-9 carrying the Marshall University Football Team, crashed on approach to Huntington Tri-State Airport killing all 75 people on board. 

It was a day that changed a university, a town, a nation and the lives of so many people... forever.

This website is dedicated to those 75 people, our 75, who are gone from our lives forever but will
always be in our hearts. We, the family of the 75, will make sure that their memory is never forgotten. 

These 75 were more than a tragic event. They were more than a movie. They were our fathers, mothers, grandparents, husbands, wives, sons, daughters, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and grandchildren.

This is their Story.


A Memorial Service is held every year at Marshall on November 14th to remember those we lost. At the end of the ceremony the memorial fountain goes silent until Spring.
This years service will be at 2:00pm

The services can be viewed on Livestream. Below is the link to the 50th Annual Memorial Service from November 14, 2020.
