The Tragic West Virginia Event That Inspired A Major Motion Picture

It is a moment in history that changed the city of Huntington forever. The Marshall plane crash left a school without a football team and a city without hope. But eventually, we rose above our despair and moved on. But we never forgot.

Then, in 2006, we got a movie about that day and how the city recovered from the tragedy. It was the time Hollywood came to West Virginia and immortalized the story of the loss and eventual recovery experienced by an entire city.
