Memorial for victims of the ValuJet Flight 592 crash
On May 11, 1996, ValuJet Flight 592 dove nose-first into the Everglades with 110 people onboard. No one survived. The DC-9 aircraft took off from Miami International Airport and was headed for Atlanta. In July of that year, the remains of the victims who could not be identified were buried together at Woodlawn Park Cemetery South, and a memorial service was held for all 110 victims.
In remembrance of the people who lost their lives in the accident, a black granite memorial reads: “This monument is dedicated to the memory of those who perished in the Florida Everglades air tragedy of Flight 592 on May 11, 1996.” It is engraved with the names of the 110 victims.
