26 years ago: plane crash killed Gov. Mickelson, seven others


Friday marks the 26th anniversary of the plane crash that killed South Dakota governor George Mickelson and seven others. 

The men were returning from Cincinnati, Ohio, where they had traveled to save the John Morrell Meat Packing Plant in Sioux Falls.  

The plane had just crossed the border into Iowa when one of the propellers came off, sending the plane down into a farm silo.
