There was recently some more press for terrible airplane crashes in Northern Nevada. A headline about an airplane accident in Reno that was part of a documentary called Sole Survivor” put on by CNN. Honestly, when we first read the words “Reno Airplane Crash” we wondered, thinking of the recent air accident at the Reno Air Races in Stead, how it was called that. We suppose that’s a function of how many air accidents in Washoe County occur here, and result in terribly injuries and deaths. This documentary was about something else, though, a plane crash in 1985 where everyone on board was killed, but this one boy who was 17 years old at the time of the crash.
