The annual ceremony of remembrance for those who died in the 1970 Wichita State University plane crash will be held at 9 a.m. Friday, Oct. 2, at Cessna Stadium.

There will be a reception immediately following the remembrance on the Cessna Stadium concourse. The audience will be seated on the west side of the stadium.

Enhancements have been made to Memorial ’70, located near the 18th Street and Hillside entrance to the university. Those additions to Memorial ’70 will officially be revealed on Oct. 2.

The ceremony is open to the public. Attendees may visit the memorial near 18th and Hillside at their leisure.

The ceremony will honor the 31 people - WSU football players, administrators, supporters and flight crew - who died in the crash in the Rocky Mountains.

For those who cannot attend in person, the ceremony will be available by livestream at Wichita.edu/memorial70 and later on demand on the Wichita State University YouTube channel.
