ValuJet 592 memorial


Will be traveling to south Florida in February for 2-weeks and plan on visiting the ValuJet memorial on Florida’s Tamiami Trail and was wondering if anybody could offer some insight on this tragic incident…having never personally seen or experienced the Florida Everglades, is the memorial as close as one can get to the actual crash site?


I did a quick wikipedia search and it looks like the memorial is 8 miles south of the actual crash site.

The memorial, consisting of 110 concrete pillars, is located just north of Tamiami Trail at 25°45′42.61″N 80°40′19.30″W about 11.9 miles west of Krome Avenue in Miami-Dade County and points to the location of the crash site eight miles to the north.
