While there are many theories about the cause of the explosion, the
definitive cause is still unknown. But the story continues to intrigue
locals, authors, and historians, and the society’s own Ken Keller and Jim
Jeselnick have done extensive research on the event.
On Nov. 21, Keller will give a quick before-hand look at the nation in 1933
and then present the details of the flight, the crash, and the aftermath
with its many investigations. Two eyewitnesses to the crash site are
expected to share their memories of the time.
This is the final Duneland Historical Society meeting in 2013. The next
meeting is scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 20, 2014. All society programs are
open to the public. Membership applications will be available at the
meeting. Phone (219) 983-9715 for information.
