ST. JOHN’S, NEWFOUNDLAND - Twelve years ago on Friday, March 12th, the Canadian province of Newfoundland & Labrador experienced the tragic loss of 17 people when Flight 491 crashed in the waters off the coast. Today, the Newfoundland and Labrador Oil and Gas Industries Association remembers those individuals, their family and friends, as well as the lone survivor of the crash.
