American Eagle Flight 4184 was just any other short-haul flight over the Midwest—until it plummeted into a soybean field in Roselawn, Indiana, on Halloween 1994. Listen to the newest episode of Take to the Sky: The Air Disaster Podcast as Shelly recounts Flight 4184's fall from the sky, a crash that led to pilots advocating for changes in aviation safety and led to changes in how airlines respond to victims’ families in the wake of aviation disasters.
We also talk about Halloween; if you are looking for a plague doctor mask, Stephanie recommends this gem from Amazon.
