Thank you for adding this place. We visited it in May, as my wife’s grandfather was one of the passengers aboard the United Airlines flight.


Little more than 4 years later, United Airlines and TWA had another mid-air crash over New York Harbor. More than 200 people died, including my father. There were no survivors.

Where are the United victims buried?

The United victims are buried in a mass grave at a cemetery in Grand Canyon National Park.
