77 | by Pat

It has now been 77 years to the day that Knute Rockne's plane went down in a Kansas field. What makes this year different than the previous 76 is that Easter Heathman, one of the first on the scene back in 1931, is no longer with us to guide visitors to the crash site Memorial and share his memories of that fateful day. Rest in peace, Knute and Easter.
