ValuJet Flight 592 Memorial

In memory of the 110 victims of ValuJet Flight 592 that crashed in the Everglades. 

This sobering memorial honors the memory of the 110 victims of ValuJet Flight 592 that crashed May 11, 1996 in the Everglades. The cause of the crash was determined to be due to expired oxygen generators being improperly carried in the cargo hold.  All of the passengers and crew lost their lives during the crash.  The memorial was built in 1999 for the third anniversary of the crash.

It is approx 10 mile past the Miccosukee Tribe of Indians of Florida Casino. There is also a Lock/Bridge over canal and a small building with the number S333 where you need to cross canal to get to memorial.
