Ceremony To Mark 85th Anniversary of Rockne Plane Crash

KSCB News - March 31, 2016 3:24 pm

Kansas has been gearing up for the 85th anniversary of the central Kansas plane crash that killed Notre Dame football legend Knute Rockne and seven other people.

Buses will transport people Saturday to the site of the wreckage near the small town of Bazaar. The Flint Hills site is marked with a marble-and-limestone monument. A morning ceremony will include a flyover, a moment of silence and the playing of bagpipes.

After the ceremony, there will be a program at the Bazaar Schoolhouse that will include a talk about Rockne. His death at age 43 at the height of his career – having led the Fighting Irish to consecutive undefeated seasons his final two seasons – made front-page news across the country.
