LITTLE ROCK -- It was five years ago today that American Airlines Flight 1420 crashed while landing at the Little Rock National Airport. Ten passengers and a pilot died.
The memorial features pictures of those who died in the crash, a visual reminder of bravery of those on board. Survivors of the accident say they're grateful for the memorial. They say it's just one more way to bring together the family that's grown out of this tragedy.
"My sister Judy Thacker was one of the victims in the crash," said Cooper, "She was a wonderful person, very vivacious person, very active in everything that she did and loved everything she did. She loved life, and people, family. It was just hard to describe her."
