Miracle on Buffalo Pass Signing at OTBP
Thursday, September 20th 6-8 PM
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. Join us at Off the Beaten Path for a talk and book signing with rescuer Jerry Alsum and others involved with the crash. Alsum, rescuers and survivors also will be signing books during an upcoming reunion Sept. 21 at The Steamboat Grand.
