Relatives of the 260 people who died on American Airlines Flight 587 have commemorated the jetliner’s crash in with a solemn ceremony in the Rockaways.
American Airlines Flight 587 crashed in Belle Harbor, Queens, and what many thought to be a potential terror attack turned out to be just a tragic accident resulting from pilot error. Still 265 people died. Hundreds gathered on Saturday to honor the victims on the 10th anniversary.
The plane crashed into the Queens Community of Belle Harbor in the Rockaways moments after taking off from Kennedy Airport on this day, back in 2001.
