Stories in Stone: Flight 3407 Memorial

Memorial to the 50 victims of Continental Connection Flight 3407 in Forest Lawn Cemetery, 1411 Delaware Avenue in Buffalo, New York. Flight 3407 took off at 9:18 p.m. on February 12, 2009 on a flight from Newark, New Jersey to Buffalo, New York with 49 passengers and crew. As the plane approached Buffalo Niagara International Airport, ice buildup and pilot error caused it to stall and crash into a house on Long Street. All 49 passengers and crew were killed, including one resident of the home. Many of the victims’ remains were never identified and are interred in Forest Lawn Cemetery.
