Hi again! My name is Cheryl, I am about to turn 50 in a few days and have taken a second look at life. I lost my grandma to this crash when I was 14 years old. Up until recently with a new lost friend, I have picked up again on my aviation interests and have had many opportunities to fly a 737 simulator. Yes you guessed it! I have flown into Pago Pago in the simulator and have found myself drawn to this interest beyond belief. I have done much research on this crash, reports after reports along with all the court dealings and papers that my dad received during this case. I have also corresponded with Bill Norris, the author of the book Wilful Misconduct which he wrote about this crash. I have decided to go to Pago Pago not only for closure, but to hopfully visit the crash site. Why? I just don't really know why other than I am feeling closer to my grandma than I ever have and I would like to be the member of my family that can say"Iv'e been there and was able to say goodbye" Also, I have vacationed in a lot of the Carribean countries and I love the ocean and palms. I am a FUN IN THE SUN kind of girl and Pago Pago looks absulutley stunning. I would like to hire a guide, rent a metal detector, Comb the jungle, swim in the sea,and Live my dream. Has anyone been there? Does anyone have any advice to give? Has anyone done anything like this before?
