Upcoming spring events at the Rossland Museum
March Speaker Series with Ron Dennett – Murphy Creek Headwaters Plane Crash: Tragedy in the Rossland Range
On Oct. 18, 1947, a Royal Canadian Air Force plane carrying nine people – seven RCAF crew members and two civilians – crashed near Mount Plewman in the Rossland Range. There were no survivors. Five years later, in October of 1952, Wilf Gibbard came across the remnants of the plane. Much of the story of that fateful flight remains a mystery. Ron Dennett, RMDC volunteer and researcher, has been digging into this story for many years now and will share a special presentation about this fatal crash and the discovery of the wreckage at the Museum on Thursday, March 30, at 6 p.m. Learn more: www.rosslandmuseum.ca/news/ron-dennett-2023.
