    Spooky… I was walked across the 14th street bridge this past Saturday. We were using the bridge to access the Navy / Merchant Marine Memorial which would have been at the far end of the crash site (about 200 yards from the crash end of the bridge).

    The Monument at the site was placed in 1922 and has the following on it:

    “To
    The strong souls and ready valor
    of those men of
    the united states
    who in the navy, the merchant marine
    and other paths of activity
    upon the waters of the world
    have given life or still offer it
    in the performance of heroic deeds
    this monument is dedicated
    by a grateful people”

    So the monument was already on the site for heroic deeds upon “other paths of activity upon the waters of the world”

  2. The switches the pilot failed to turn on was the engine anti-ice system. The probes on the front of the engines would have been thawed by it and there would have been no incorrect engine pressure readings.
