Northwest Airlines Flight 6231

On December 1, 1974 a Northwest Orient Airlines Boeing 727 flying between John F. Kennedy International Airport and Buffalo, NY, encountered atmospheric icing and crashed on this site. Flight 6231 was operating a ferry flight, having been chartered to pick up the Baltimore Colts football team. Three crew members, the only people aboard the aircraft, were killed in the crash. The accident and subsequent federal investigation prompted changes in cockpit design and advancements in commercial pilot training practiced by airlines today. In loving memory Capt. John B. Lagorio, 1st Officer Walter (Jim) A. Zadra, 2nd Officer James (Jim) Cox. Dedicated 2015. The Historical Society of Rockland County
