Perhaps the youngest witness to the crash.

One of my earliest memories is of this crash. I was very nearly 4 years old when the crash happened. I was playing outside at the end of Poplar Way. I can vividly remember seeing the Herc bank over hard and crash into the ground. I remember looking over the fence on that road to see the plane and seeing the fireball and the smoke. Being not quite 4 I don't remember much else. It has been rewarding to know that I didn't imagine it and it surprised me just how many memories came flooding back when reading others accounts.
