BURLINGTON, Ky. -- Though she was aboard the plane, Tracy Smith-Eby can’t remember the deadliest crash of Northern Kentucky history.
“I was the baby. I was 15 months old, and I was the youngest survivor from the plane crash,” Smith-Eby said.
Seventy people died that snowy November night exactly 50 years ago when TWA Flight 128 clipped the treetops on the hillside above the Ohio River, "bounced" over the hill and hit more trees before crashing in an apple orchard.
A firefighter found Smith-Eby in a tree. She was one of twelve who survived.
Survivors, families and members of the community gathered at a memorial Sunday to honor those who lost their lives on Nov. 20, 1967.
