Voices from a Forgotten Tragedy is a reawakening of the experiences and memories of Trans-Canada Air Lines Flight 831. Fifty years have passed since the devastating and mysterious crash of the new DC 8F jet on November 29, 1963. The voices of the families, first responders, investigators and others come together for the first time as a virtual conversation within this book. Five minutes after take-off from Montreal's Dorval airport the sleek jet crashed into a muddy field with total destruction and the loss of 118 lives. Aboard the plane, on the one hour flight from Montreal to Toronto, were 101 business men, 10 women and a crew of 7. The dreadful November weather stranded many potential passengers in buses and taxis, causing them to miss Flight 831. The reason for this crash, Canada's worst domestic aviation tragedy, was never determined with certainty. A catastrophic event, such as the crash of TCA Flight 831 sends reverberations through communities and families. Individuals affected by the tragedy are speaking out in this book- voicing how the impact affected their lives and even the lives of their children. Voices from a forgotten Tragedy is an open affirmation of Life after the disaster of November 29, 1963.
