The families of victims of the October 1994 crash of an American Eagle ATR 72 into a field in Roselawn, Ind., met October 31 to remember their loved ones and discuss fundraising efforts to build a permanent memorial. All 68 people aboard American Eagle Flight 4184 died in the accident. The pilots lost control of the aircraft after it accumulated a significant amount of ice while flying at low speed in freezing rain in the holding pattern, a problem that triggered an autopilot disconnection while the aircraft was severely out of trim.
