The Deadly History Of This Wyoming Peak Is Terrifying But True

Medicine Bow Peak is such a quiet, peaceful and beautiful spot in Wyoming. That’s why it’s so hard to believe that it was the site of the worst air disaster in the United States at the time. What started out as an ordinary day for 66 passengers became one of the worst days in Wyoming’s history.

Check out this video by YouTube user, John, who visited the crash site of United Airlines Flight 409 on Medicine Bow Peak.

Fortunately, out of respect for those who lost their lives that day, visitors have left what remains as it was found.

Lives may have been lost that day but Wyoming will never forget these men and women.
