Remembering USAir Flight 1493

On Friday, February 1, 1991, USAir Flight 1493 collided with SkyWest Flight 5569 upon landing at Los Angeles International airport. First Officer David Kelly, who was performing the landing at Los Angeles, did not see the SkyWest flight until the nose of the USAir aircraft lowered onto the runway.

Flight Attendant Deanna Bethea and Captain Colin Shaw were among the 23 fatalities on Flight 1493, in addition to all 12 aboard the SkyWest flight.

Today, we honor Flight Attendants Deanna Bethea, Bill Ibarra, Patricia Hodges, and Vance Spurgeon, in addition to Captain Colin Shaw and First Officer David Kelly.
