Murphy Creek Headwaters Plane Crash: Rossland Recollections with Ron Dennett at the Museum

May 31 1:00 to 2:30 pm

Join long-time volunteer Ron Dennett at the Museum at 1 pm on Wednesday, May 31st for a special, repeat presentation about the Murphy Creek Headwaters Plane Crash.

On October 18, 1947, a Royal Canadian Air Force plane carrying nine people - seven RCAF crew members and two civilians - crashed near Mount Plewman in the Rossland Range. There were no survivors. Five years later, in October of 1952, Wilf Gibbard came across the remnants of the plane. Much of the story of that fateful flight remains a mystery.

Ron Dennett, pilot and RMDC volunteer & researcher, has been digging into this story for many years. Join us at the Museum to hear his presentation about this tragic crash and the discovery of the wreckage.

Entry by donation. Treats/Refreshments Provided.
