A new exhibit for the 1961 plane crash that killed the U.S. figure skating team has opened at the skating Hall of Fame museum in Colorado, according to the Examiner.

Thirty-four members of the U.S. figure skating contingent, including athletes, family, and coaches, were killed when the plane crashed en route to the world championships in Prague.
