Mystery in the Sky: The Crash of Flight 773
Almost 50 years ago, quiet Danville was shaken by the crash of Flight 773 just east of town. The plane plunged into a hill on a cattle ranch with the loss of 44 lives. No one knew why. The cause of the crash was veiled in mystery: equipment failure? pilot error? a bomb? inclement weather? Why??
The “Mystery in the Sky” exhibit features a collection of artifacts and records never before shown in the San Ramon Valley. More importantly it will unravel the mystery just as it happened back in 1964. Danville was the base of operations for Civil Aeronautics Board investigators and others operating out of the San Ramon Chapel just south of the Village Theatre whose second floor they used as well. Do not miss this unusual exhibit!
