The Terrifying, Deadly Plane Crash In Cleveland That Will Never Be Forgotten

Cleveland has a long history of entertaining its residents. The city continues to host hundreds of annual celebrations and festivities, but once upon a time, those festivities were genuinely dangerous. One such event resulted in an airplane crash, and the memories of billowing black smoke still hang over the city like a ghost.

Moments of a crash during the races have been captured on film and shared by George L Graham on YouTube. While it’s not clear if this is the infamous 1949 crash, the video shows what spectators likely saw when Odom’s plane went down.
