1. Crash of TWA Flight 128 Marker
Inscription.  TWA flight 128, tail #N821TW, was making an approach in light snow when it crashed into an orchard approximately 1,000 feet north of here, on November 20. 1967 at 8:57 p.m. The four-engine Convair 880 was en route from Los Angeles to Cincinnati. 70 people perished, 5 of whom were Kentuckians. 2 crew members & 10 passengers survived

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) ruled pilot error as the cause of the crash. It remains the worst accident in Kentucky aviation history. This resulted in the construction of an Approach Lighting System (ALS) for runway 18, which was completed in July 1969
