About fifty years ago a remarkable group of figure skaters, their coaches, their families, and U.S. officials boarded Sabena Flight 548, bound for Prague, to participate in the 1961 World Championships. Their plane crashed near the Brussels airport on February 15, 1961, killing all on board. Their lives were cut short, but their influence continues to this day. This moving book, written by Patricia Shelley Bushman, celebrates the thirty four members of the delegation and their contributions to U.S. Figure Skating, past and present.
"This book is a must for the library of any skating fan." JoJo Starbuck, two-time Olympian, World Medalist, and U.S. Figure Skating Hall of Famer
