Miracle on Buffalo Pass Reunion at the Steamboat Grand
Off the Beaten Path will be bookselling at this years' reunion of survivors and rescuers of the 1978 crash.
The word "miracle" is thrown around a lot. But it seems like the right word to use about the crash of Rocky Mountain Airways flight 217. In December, 1978, a passenger plane with 22 people on board left Steamboat Springs for Denver. It went down in a blinding blizzard on Buffalo Pass roughly an hour after take-off. The crash, and the monumental rescue that followed, are the subject of the book, Miracle on Buffalo Pass: Rocky Mountain Airways Flight 217. Survivors and Rescuers will be signing books during this wonderful reunion, which is open to the public.
